Winemaker's Notes

Produced on a gravel soil, the wines are endowed with a solid tannic structure. Rich in color, full-bodied yet delicate, they have elegance, charm and a generous bouquet, and are at their best 2-7 years after the vintage. Like the Classified Growths of the Médoc, the wines come from a vineyard of sufficient size and heterogeneity to allow for a rigorous selection. With this objective, a second selection is made at the time of blending to create a second wine, Château Fournas-Bernadotte.
