Chateau Lague 2009 Fronsac
Chateau Lague has a unique history. It was part of an estate established in 1746 by Louis-François Duplessis, Duke de Richelieu, nephew of Cardinal Richelieu. He was the Marshal of France and a great lover of the wines of Fronsac. He held sumptuous festivities at this remarkable chateau situated on one of the highest hilltops in the region. Panoramic views were enjoyed and the vineyards sloped down, covering the hillsides. This alone raised the prestige of Fronsac wines to the equal of the great growths in the neighboring regions. Today the vineyards cover some 14 acres and average 30-40 years of age. Merlot and Cabernet Franc are planted. This lush wine from the outstanding 2009 vintage is 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. The wine was aged 10 months in oak barrels. The Wine Spectator called it "An ultrarich Fronsac, with blackberry and fresh herbs on the nose. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish..." A great find!!!

Amazing value Fronsac, Bold and Lush
Quite frankly I was stunned at how complex and pleasing this wine was. Intense aromas of black cherry, raspberry and cassis amidst dried herbs, tobacco and floral notes linger through to the lush and balanced palate. It's not a bashful wine, but combines elegance with powerful fruit that leads to a long silky finish. Winner!

josh, after you do a tasting video what do you do with the rest of the wine in the decanter,do you share with your staff a glass?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, the staff here enjoys tasting and learning about the wines, especially on video day.
Josh, from your experties what is the best time to decant both nappa cab and bordeaux? My last bottle of artemis bottle needed morethan 1.5hr+ to get its roots.
A shopper on Apr 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It depends upon a lot of factors but mostly on the wine. Temperature plays a part, what you're pairing it with also has an effect. It's just something you have to keep experimenting with. Usually with young Cabs I'll decant them for 20-30 minutes and the then go for it. Our Wine Specialist John Fernandez has done a lot of experimenting with decanting times. He has reported times up to 36 hours for certain Barolos or Amarones to hit their stride. It's part of the mystery of drinking one of things that makes it so much fun.
