“I was born in the estate, like Obélix I “fell” into the magic potion when I was little. From my grand parents to my parents who were vinegrower, it did not take long to realize I was made for this life. After a ten years collaboration with my father, I am taking care with a lot of enthusiasm of the future of Fonbadet.”

Worthy style of the Grands crus classés that surround the estate “Château Latour, Château Mouton Rothschild, Château Lynch Bages, Château Pichon Comtesse”. The wines of the Fonbadet seduce with their traditional and robust structures and their round and silky tanins. One of the best quality price of Pauillac.
