Having been built in 1277, Chateau Fontesteau is full of history. The salamander carved over the dungeon door is thought to be a sign that King Francis the First visited the castle. The scallop shell decorations remind us that the pilgrims walking the Saint James Path passed through on their way to Santiago de Compostela. During the French Revolution, Fontesteau sheltered an “irascible man” who hid his arms in the castle. Today, they continue to make great wine.

Wine Advocate writes, “Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the 2015 Fontesteau has a generous bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, cedar and sous bois scents that are nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, quite fine tannin, plenty of edgy red fruit and impressive delineation on the finish that shows focus and length. This is recommended. Bravo. 91/100”

Our team notes that Bordeaux is enjoying an incredible resurgence with the spectacular 2015 vintage.
