Add To Your WishlistChateau Fontesteau Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois Magnum 2010
Between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde River, the Médoc offers an ideal temperate climate, allowing the grapes to ripen beautifully and guaranteeing balance and finesse in the wines. The gravelly soil of Fontesteau, with its deep limestone base, allows the traditional Médoc grape varieties (particularly the Cabernet Sauvignon) to express their full potential. The Fontesteau vineyard has been using integrated agricultural methods for the last 30 years, exploiting the plants’ natural defence system and avoiding where possible the use of synthetic products to protect the vineyard.
"Each year the grapes picked at optimum ripeness give us cuvées with different characteristic tastes. The plots are vinified individually so that each vat represents its own specificity when proposed at the blend tasting that takes place in the January following the harvest. No vintage is ever the same as another. The magic of blending confers a unique style to each : The Cabernet Sauvignon is always the dominant variety in the Château Fontesteau blend, a deep and elegant wine".
