Description

The aromatic finesse and delicacy of a red wine from Listrac-Médoc

The estate

A magnificent property located in the Listrac-Médoc appellation, Château Fonréaud is one of the essential references of the Médoc. Owned by the Chanfreau family and classified as a Cru Bourgeois Supérieur, Château Fonréaud seduces wine-lovers with the signature style of its fruity and spicy wines, which evolve beautifully upon a very gourmet palate and promise a remarkable potential for age. This property takes its name from a legend, according to which King Henry II stopped here once to quench his thirst. The term "Font-Réaux" means "Royal Fountain".

The vineyard

The Château Fonréaud vineyard extends over the high gravel terrace of the Médoc. Located between the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic Ocean, the vineyard boasts a privileged location and benefits from a unique microclimate. The vines are planted in gravels soils resting upon a clay-limestone base, dating from the Oligocene period. This terroir allows for excellent drainage and an ideal ripening of the grapes.

The vintage

The mild spring conditions favoured rapid and even flowering. The rainy days at the end of June ensured sufficient water reserves before an extremely dry summer. The well-drained clay-limestone subsoils made it possible to avoid any water stress in the vineyard. Autumn was marked by ideal weather conditions with rain in mid-September allowing for optimal maturity to be achieved and an alternation of hot, sunny days with cool nights providing ideal conditions for refining the tannins.

Vinification and ageing

The vinification is carried out in semi-underground cellars with thermoregulated tanks (tapered stainless steel vats, inverted tapered stainless steel vats and concrete tanks). Optimal extraction of the fruit is favoured during alcoholic fermentation. Ageing is carried out in barrels (30% of which are new oak barrels).

The blend

The Château Fonréaud 2020 is made from a blend of Merlot (55%), Cabernet Sauvignon (42%) and Petit Verdot (3%).

The tasting

The Château Fonréaud 2020 seduces with its beautiful garnet colour, its silky structure and its dense, lively, round and refined palate. A vintage delicately blending balance and fruitiness.
