excellent prices from Tim Knappstein with his Riposte wines.

affordable entree into aged Bordeaux, this is just the wine.
Chateau Fonreaud Listrac-Medoc 1996,
The ideal entree
into aged Bordeaux!
vineyard is in a marvelous location on the
highest elevation in the Medoc. The perfect
combination of grape varieties grown on a
diversity of soils expresses itself with
style and distinction in the wine. Château
Fonréaud is round, full-bodied and smooth,
with very ripe tannin. It spreads out
deliciously on the palate and has an
excellent structure. The vat room has
numerous small temperature-controlled vats
which make it possible to fine-tune
winemaking in order to bring out the nuances
of each vineyard plot.” -
