Closure: Cork

Other Reviews....
The 2016 Fonreaud is certainly a Listrac that is worth checking out. 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.

A juicy red with blackberry, blueberry and licorice character. Medium body and firm tannins. Lovely racy nature to this.

This wine comes from one of the best-known and most reliable estates in Listrac. This is juicy, with strong wood notes that are in balance with the fine fruit. Hold until 2025.
