WA91-93: "The 2016 Fonreaud is certainly a Listrac that is worth checking out. The bouquet is very well defined with supremely well-integrated oak that allows the terroir to show through. There is a subtle Margaux-like floral scent coming through. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins and a very good backbone. This Fonreaud is one of the most precise that I have tasted and there is tangible tension all the way through to the refined finish. This Listrac has produced some very fine wines recently and this 2016 could be the best yet." - Neal Martin

NM91: "The 2016 Fonréaud has a refined bouquet with blackberry, cedar and smoky scents, quite focused and poised yet classic in style. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well judged acidity, and silky smooth in texture. Tobacco and pencil shavings towards the finish. What a lovely Listrac from Fonréaud this year. Tasted at the Oenoconseil tasting room in Bordeaux." - Neal Martin

JS91: "A delicate 2016 with hot stones, currants and hints of cedar. Medium to light body. Easy yet firm finish. A blend of 52 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 44 per cent merlot and four per cent petit verdot. Drink in 2020." - James Suckling
