Château Frédignac wines are produced by the L’Amouller family.  EARL Vignobles L’Amouller is one of the first members of the Environment Management System group of Bordeaux wines and they are certified to ISO 14001.  They have been farming organically since 2010 and their wines are certified Vin Biologique and Agriculture Biologique.  I discovered them after researching organic producers in the Blaye region and they are one of a limited number of producers that have chosen to go organic; and with excellent results.

The Merlot gives the wine a certain softness while the Cabernet Sauvignon aids the structure and aging with its tanins and the addition of Cabernet Franc brings finesse to the ageing of the wine with its aromas of fruit and spice.

This Terroir Rouge wine has regularly received  good scores from various critics and in 2012 was given a score of 90 by Wine Enthusiast.  It is an excellent, value-for-money, organic wine to grace your table when entertaining or just for yourself!

    Excellent wine for the price. This does not quite have the depth of flavour of the La Favorite wine but I found it complex enough to balance with red meat. Another good organic wine from Fredignac.
