Established halfway between Toulouse and Montauban, bearing fruit on the slopes which dominate both the Tarn and the Garonne, the vineyard Fronton derives its specificity and its aromatic signature from a specific grape variety: the Négrette that we also call Pinot St. George. The chance of nature has given it aromatic notes, some of which tend to evoke the violet, the emblematic flower of Toulouse, the neighboring capital. Like many vineyards in Occitania, the history of this one goes back to Roman traditions. Mainly vinified in red blends, the wines of Fronton on the nose well marked by the Négrette also have suppleness and velvety tannins to which blends with other grape varieties contribute such as Syrah, Cabernet Franc or Cabernet Sauvignon. Who says red can also say rosé and in this PDO it is present in the range of its famous wines.
