Chateau Fonbadet Pauillac 2003
Since its creation in the 1800's, the estate has been owned by different families whose names are still notorious in the region today. Since 2000, the winemaking process is carried out by Pascale Peyronie, who took over from his father Pierre.
The 50 acre vineyard of Chateau Fonbadet is planted with the traditional Medoc grape varieties: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot and an additional 5% Petit Verdot and Malbec. The wine is aged in 100% new French oak barrels.
Strongly typed Pauillac, round and full-bodied with aromas of Havana tobacco, the wine deserves to be better known as in the great years of 1962, 1982, 1986 and 1990, it equals the best.
