Marks and reviews
Château Fonréaud is located in the Listrac-Médoc appellation and is one of the Médoc's leading properties. Owned by the Chanfreau family and classified as a Cru Bourgeois Supérieur, Château Fonréaud seduces wine lovers with the style of its fruity and spicy wines, which evolve into a full and flavoursome mouthfeel and promise to age beautifully over time. This estate takes its name from a legend according to which King Henry II made a halt at the estate to quench his thirst. The term "Font-Réaux" means "Royal Fountain".
The vineyard of Château Fonréaud spreads over the high gravel terrace of the Médoc. Situated between the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic Ocean, the 32-hectare vineyard enjoys a privileged location and benefits from a unique microclimate. The vines are planted on Pyrenean gravel soils upon a limestone base, which allows for an excellent drainage and a good ripening of the grapes, giving rise to great Listrac wines.
The palate is seduced by this wine’s smooth feel, its aromatic intensity as well as its structure that harmoniously blends power and elegance.
