Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

93 DE / 93 JA / 90-91 JS / 88-90 WA / 88-90 JD

Smells potent on the nose. Supple and juicy, quite direct, clean and lean with salty but also ripe and concentrated blackcurrants and bramble fruits. The tannins are at the fore with a crushed stone and chalky powdery texture. Rich and quietly powerful, with persistence from start to finish. Mouthwatering acidity nicely counters the ripe fruit while giving an appealing lift on the finish. Highly charged, bold and generous but still retains a certain charm and moreish quality. HVE certified. A yield of 38hl/ha. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

Concentrated plum in colour, slate texture to the tannins, this is a good quality, with depth, carefully extracted dark berry fruits, a ton of character. Great stuff from Fonréaud. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Firm and chalky tannin structure with medium to full body and a juicy, dark-fruited finish. - James Suckling

The 2022 Fonréaud reveals aromas of cassis, blueberry, menthol, violet and graphite. Medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it's still a bit firm on the palate, but its lively acidity propels it to a long, penetrating finish. This wine is the result of an impressive effort from this property and its well-maintained 43-hectare vineyard in the outreaches of Listrac. - Yohan Castaing , Wine Advocate

 The dense purple-hued 2022 Château Fonréaud has lots of spicy oak as well as notes of cassis, graphite, and spice. The oak is front and center, yet this has good depth of fruit, medium-bodied richness, and a solid spine of acidity that keeps it clean and lively. It has potential. - Jeb Dunnuck
