L'Harmonie de Fonbadet

    

Second wine of the Château Fonbadet.

The Harmony of Fonbadet carries well its name everything balances it, sharpness and elegance.

Château Haut-Pauillac

 

The Château Haut-Pauillac Cru comes from the promotion of 1er Artisans Crus to a Pauillac Cru Bourgeois Supérieur, highly-rated on the market at the end of the 20th century.

 

The proximity of its vineyard to Pauillac, and even its embedding in this town, is a testimony of its « great age ».  Its Terroir sites are probably among the most ancient vineyards of Pauillac, given that they are hemmed in the town of Pauillac.  This Cru was first known to the public when the Féret guide book was published in 1874 in the section dedicated to the Crus Bourgeois Supérieurs and 1er Artisans.

 

In 1908, it should be noted that the wines were highly-rated on the market and that the harvests of 1881 and 1887 were sold en Primeur (wine futures) under the monopoly of the Bordeaux Wine Trade.

 

Its brand kept improving through the 19th century starting from the bottom of the list (20th) of the Féret rankings to the first places (6th).

 

Château Padarnac

 

The Château Padarnac Cru was born in the first part of the 19th century.

Padarnac, a locality of Pauillac, was naturally obvious, the property, being predominantly situated around this village.

The Château Padarnac has a long wine-making history, its current vineyard was already cultivated at the beginning of the 17th century.

 

Its brand was present in the first edition of the Féret guide book, in 1850. It will be known as Cru Bourgeois in the 1932 classification.

Its Terroir site of Padarnac, on one property, the elite core of the original vineyard, is hemmed in parcels of Grands Crus Classés, as it is often the case for knolls with a long wine-making history.

These soils belong to the system of deep Graves of the Padarnac knoll.

 

However, if the gustatory level of its wines allows it, the wine-making continuity of this Cru for three centuries in keeping with the stability of its brand, are real advantages to compete with the Crus of a superior class.

Château Tour du Roch Milon

 

The origins of this Cru date back to the 18th century.  It was first mentioned in the Féret guide book of 1929, where you could read the position of the vineyard. In 1932, the Chambers of Commerce of Bordeaux and of Agriculture of Gironde ranked is as a Cru Bourgeois.

 

In the 1940s, Monsieur Robert Peyronie (father of current owner) became the managing director of the Château Tour du Roc Millon which appeared in the « Guide des Grands Vins de Bordeaux » in 1945 as belonging to the vineyards of the Peyronie family.

 

The Château Tour du Roc Milon vineyard is situated in Pauillac. With a 5 hectares area, the average age of its vines ranges from 50 to 60 years old. This vineyard offers a remarkable wine by its delicacy and its long storage in bottles.
