    Excellent with levels into neck, some nicks to the labels, though all details, including the 1974 vintage, are clearly legible.

    About

    Located 40 kilometres north-east of Bordeaux, Fronsac. With a population of just over 1,000 it is more a commune than town. The wines from Fronsac tend to be very intensely coloured, well structured, generous and intense - wines to lay down rather than drink young.

    At just 7 hectares, Chateau Tessenday is relatively small and produces just 36,000 bottles of a blend of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc. It was founded in 1840 and was purchased in 1972 by Paul-Bernard d'Arfeuille. Since then, it has undergone significant renovation and modernisation and is now producing award winning wines, picking up a gold medal at the Concours General Agricole de Paris in 2012.

    Our Views

    With such good levels, this wine has clearly been very well cellared. Whilst there is always a degree of risk of deterioration with wines of this age, we feel the risk is minimum with Chateau Tessenday 1974.
