Label for Château Fonreaud 2009, Listrac Médoc (non owc)

Product Details

Tasting Notes

Chateau Fonreaud, built in 1855, is a Cru Bourgeois in the appellation of Listrac-Medoc; A classically structured Bordeaux, showing tight, elegant fruit surrounded by a cloak of rich tannins; The bramble fruit flavours merge with hints of mineral and oak giving complexity; A wine to be enjoyed over the next decade. James Griswood - Wine Buyer

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Ch Fonréaud 2009 Listrac-Médoc is notably evolved. You could enjoy it tonight. Although far from the star of the vintage, it's an extremely decent cru bourgeois property that is rather handsome actually, just off the road to Pauillac from the main road up the Médoc. In less ripe vintages the wine, like so many Listracs, can be a tad lean but in 2009 it has produced a wine that is thoroughly sweet and luscious, with the cedary perfume of a classic left-bank bordeaux and quite enough freshness to keep it appetising. There's a little dry tannin on the finish so I reckon it will drink well any time this decade.
