Description

Château Fonréaud is well-known for its historic vineyard and the quality of its wines. Its name comes from a legend, and it enjoys a privileged location on the highest point in the Médoc.

Fonréaud, was formerly called Font-réaux, meaning “royal fountain”. A legend tells us that in the 12th century, the King of England (probably Henry II Plantagenet, the husband of Eleanor of Aquitaine) quenched his thirst from a spring he found on the grounds.

The chateau was built in 1855 by Henri Le Blanc de Mauvesin according to plans drawn by the architect Louis-Michel Garros. It will charm you by the elegance of its architecture. Leo Chanfreau bought the estate in 1962. Today, Jean and Marie-Hélène Chanfreau are carrying his work.
