Fonréaud, name of legend and position on the roof of the medoc. “Fonréaud”, formerly “Font-réaux”, means “Royal Fountain”. Twelfth century, the king of England and the husbands of Eleanor d’Aquitaine, stopped to drink at a fresh spring.
For a long time this château remains unfinished. In 1962, Léo Chanfreau, winemaker in Algeria, returned with his family in Metropolitan France. He then visited many estates and fell in love with Fonréaud. Everything has to be rebuilt: the vineyard has only 17 hectares in bad condition.
