Situated on the highest point in the Medoc, Château Fonréaud is well-known for its historical vineyards and the legend that goes with its name.
Known for the quality of its wines, Château Fonréaud is one of the foremost Cru Bourgeois Supérieur in the commune of Listrac-Medoc. The 36 hectares of vineyards are well located on the highest elevation in the Medoc with gravel Pyrenean soils. The vines are planted to a density of 7000 vines per hectare yielding an average of 42hl/ha from thirty-year-old vines.
Parcels of grapes are strictly selected and after de-stemming and crushing the must is run into numerous small temperature-controlled vats. Plots and varieties are harvested and vinified individually for fine tuning at blending and to make the most of the individual terroirs.
The wine is barrel-aged for 12 months in merrian oak barriques before bottling. The elegance and charm of this great wine reflect the spirit of the Chanfreau family.
