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. - Neal Martin

Situated at one of the highest points in the Médoc, this estate is one of several owned by the Chanfreau family. This tight, structured wine has dense tannins and smoky, toasty flavors from wood aging. Let this rich wine fully integrate and drink from 2023.

A delicate 2016 with hot stones, currants and hints of cedar. Medium to light body. Easy yet firm finish. A blend of 52 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 44 per cent merlot and four per cent petit verdot. Drink in 2020.

The 2016 Fonréaud has a refined bouquet with blackberry, cedar and smoky scents, quite focused and poised yet classic in style. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well judged acidity, and silky smooth in texture. Tobacco and pencil shavings towards the finish. What a lovely Listrac from Fonréaud this year. -- Neal Martin

17/20 Deep crimson. Rather gorgeously ripe and glossy on the nose. Very sweet black fruits on the palate followed by really quite a charge of ripe tannin. Maybe not the longest-laster, but overall well done! A delicate... 17/20 Deep crimson. Rather gorgeously ripe and glossy on the nose.

The 2016 Château Fonreaud is a terrific Listrac and is up with the top wines from the appellation. Showing the more medium-bodied, elegant style of Listrac, with pretty mulberry and cherry fruits, it has hints of toasted bread and flowers, a rounded, supple texture, and is a totally charming, beautifully balanced 2016 to drink over the coming 8-10 years. It’s far from a blockbuster but it’s a great drink.
