"Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the 2015 Fonreaud offers impressive, engaging blackberry and briary scents on the nose, well defined and focused with just a slight reduction that works in its favor. The palate is medium-bodied with firm but fine tannin, plenty of spice-tinged black fruit mixed with graphite and cedar toward the structured finish. I admire the length of this Listrac and I suspect it will give many years of pleasure. Sign me up! Tasted September 2017." (WA)

"The 2015 Château Fonréaud is an attractive, medium-bodied, charming and fruit forward effort offering moderate amounts of sweet cherry and strawberry fruits, as well as hints of flowers. It’s a well-made, delicious Listrac to drink over the coming 7-8 years. Tasted twice." (JD)
