Chateau Fonreaud 2015

SKU:1524/15 Bordeaux - Listrac - Red - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 92

Long famous for the quality of its wines, Château Fonréaud is a prestigious Cru Bourgeois Supérieur located in the commune of Listrac-Medoc. The vineyard is in a marvelous location on the highest elevation in the Medoc. The perfect combination of grape varieties grown on a diversity of soils expresses itself with style and distinction in the wine. Château Fonréaud is round, full-bodied and smooth, with very ripe tannin. It spreads out deliciously on the palate and has an excellent structure. The vat room has numerous small temperature-controlled vats which make it possible to fine-tune winemaking in order to bring out the nuances of each vineyard plot. The wine is barrel-aged before being bottled at the château. The elegance and charm of this great wine reflect the spirit of the Chanfreau family.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the 2015 Fonreaud offers impressive, engaging blackberry and briary scents on the nose, well defined and focused with just a slight reduction that works in its favor. The palate is medium-bodied with firm but fine tannin, plenty of spice-tinged black fruit mixed with graphite and cedar toward the structured finish. I admire the length of this Listrac and I suspect it will give many years of pleasure. Sign me up! Tasted September 2017.
