Château Fontesteau Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois

The flagship of the estate, this wine is simply the expression of the best terroir that Fontesteau can offer.
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. Château Fontesteau wines are at their best after 5 to 10 years in the cellar yet never disappoint those patient enough to wait 20 years or even more.

“Château Fontesteau 2015 is expressive, fruity and delicate, a true image of this beautiful vintage.” – Marco Balsimelli, Oenologist
