Description

A refined Listrac wine with a rich aromatic palette

The estate

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 delights wine lovers with its fruity and spicy style, evolving into a full and delicious palate and promising a wonderful ageing potential. This estate takes its name from a legend according to which King Henry II stopped there to quench his thirst. The term "Font-Réaux" means "Royal Fountain."

The vineyard

The vineyard of this unmissable Listrac estate stretches across the high gravel terrace of the Médoc. Situated between the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic Ocean, the 32-hectare vineyard occupies a privileged location and benefits from a unique microclimate. The vines are planted on Pyrenean gravel soils on a limestone base, which provides excellent drainage and great ripening for the grapes.

The vintage

The year 2022 is mainly characterised by a particularly hot and dry summer. The typology of the soils on the estate is a major asset in the face of these extreme conditions. The Pyrenean gravel allowed the spring rainfall to infiltrate the limestone and clay-limestone soils, which preserved this freshness and humidity throughout the growing season. Despite the moderate water stress, the grapes were small in size, which had an impact on the yields, but of high quality. The harvest was carried out at full ripeness, with a break between the Merlot, harvested in mid-September, and the Cabernet Sauvignon, which fully ripened after some rainfall.

Winemaking and ageing

Optimal extraction of the fruit is favoured during the alcoholic fermentation.

Blend
