Fronsac- landscapes by nature
At the foot of the famous mound of Fronsac, once a strategic location but now an emblematic landmark for Fronsac’s inhabitants and visitors, the vineyard of Château Richelieu stretches over the vales and hillsides surrounding its historic 17th century building.
40km from Bordeaux city and 5km from Libourne and the prestigious neighbouring appellations of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, Fronsac was the cradle of Gallo-Roman vine growing in the Bordeaux region.
In the 18th century its wines dazzled at the Royal Court, thus helping them to gain great renown. Today, Fronsac is much-admired for its landscape of rolling hills, its ancient residences and its sloping vineyards. Often compared to Tuscany, it is above all a land of dedicated men and women, where the appellation’s exceptional terroir and subsoils are religiously preserved.
