James Suckling 90-91

Juicy and pleasing with currant, mushroom and lemon-zest notes. Medium-bodied with sleek tannins. Succulent and fresh.

Wine Advocate 87/100

From the Chanfreau family's flagship property in Listrac, the 2021 Fonréaud reveals aromas of smoky berries, licorice and toasty new oak, followed by a medium-bodied, lively and somewhat compact palate. As is often the case with this appellation, where subsoils are clay-limestone, it will require a bit of time to unwind. William Kelley

Decanter 89/100

Spritzy on the tongue, the strawberry, raspberry and red cherry fruit has a brilliant energy, not too high acid or too weak, just gentle and nicely persistent giving an even presentation and push from start to the finish. I like the texture here, it's smooth and gentle, a calm wine with plenty to like and an easy drinkability to it and the bright red fruit flavours are so appealing. Well presented with a hint of stalky, bramble and cedar touches on the finish. Georgie Hindle
