Wine Review & Rating: **+ $$ Les Sources du Chateau de la Riviere, Fronsac, Bordeaux, France, 2005

Find prices and retail availability for Chateau de la Riviere.

Initial review, by way of background: This is Les Sources du Chateau de la Riviere, Fronsac, Bordeaux, France, 2005.

In the glass: Deep burgundy.

On the nose: Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, shy, but balanced with fruit and depth, some chocolate, seems to be round and full throttle.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are mid-bright purple with acids backup up the fruit.

In summary: Overall, rates two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for its chiseled character.
