Jean Chanfreau’s family, which owns Châteaux Fonréaud and Lestage in Listrac, produces this blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, giving a wine with plenty of Cabernet cassis flavors, but also a roundness and spiciness that sit well with firm tannins. Lovers of young Bordeaux will find it ready to drink now, but it has a good five years…
New wood dominates this wine at this stage. But the solid, chunky fruit that is lingering underneath the wood promises well for the future. This is certainly one of the top growths in Listrac.
