"Dichtes Purpur mit violettem Rand. Dichtes, blaubeeriges Bouquet mit erkaltetem Waldfrüchtetee und Brombeergelee. Am cremigen Gaumen viel Holundergelee im Rückaroma, anfangs etwas vordergründig, aber dennoch heuer einer der besten Jahrgänge." Weinwisser
"The 2016 Fonreaud is certainly a Listrac that is worth checking out. The bouquet is very well defined with supremely well-integrated oak that allows the terroir to show through. There is a subtle Margaux-like floral scent coming through. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins and a very good backbone.
This Fonreaud is one of the most precise that I have tasted and there is tangible tension all the way through to the refined finish. This Listrac has produced some very fine wines recently and this 2016 could be the best yet." Wine Advocate Reviewed by Neal Martin
Weitere Informationen über das Weingut Chateau Fonreaud
Château Fonréaud is well-known for its historic vineyard and the quality of its wines. Its name comes from a legend, and it enjoys a privileged location on the highest point in the Médoc. Fonréaud, was formerly called Font-réaux, meaning “royal fountain”. A legend tells us that in the 12th century, the King of England (probably Henry II Plantagenet, the husband of Eleanor of Aquitaine) quenched his thirst from a spring he found on the grounds.
The chateau was built in 1855 by Henri Le Blanc de Mauvesin according to plans drawn by the architect Louis-Michel Garros. It will charm you by the elegance of its architecture.
Leo Chanfreau bought the estate in 1962. Today, Jean and Marie-Hélène Chanfreau are carrying his work.
Year after year the vineyard has been improved: the Cabernet Sauvignon produces a very intense wine, the hint of Petit Verdot adds spicy notes and intensify the fruity taste of the Merlot.
Thanks to a subtle blend of grape varieties, the terroir comes through beautifully in round wines with ripe tannin, fine structure that develops beautifully on the palate.
