Small Production from Idyllic Vineyards

The property was bought in 1993 by Paul Marie Morillon, who is well known as advisor to the Chateaux Ausone, Yquem and La Mondotte. His wines are being distributed by Jean-Luc Thunevin, famous owner of Chateau Valandraud and initiator of the garage wine movement.

Le Château Lafont Fourcat is located in Pujols, in the Entre-Deux-Mers, below Castillon-la-Bataille. This hilltop village is overlooking the river valley of the Dordogne and faces on the hillside opposite St Emilion. The vines are terraced and on the slope, with 7 ha of red grape varieties and 2 ha of white. The terroir is composed of clay-limestone soil and offers a generous wine.

The wine making is realized in stainless steel tanks and then in new barrels for the selection at chateau “A Nos Amours”. The wines are concentrated, aromatic and fruity. They are a credit to the Bordeaux appellation.

Over-Achiever

Made from Merlot (80%), Cot Noir or Malbec (15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%), planted on clay-limestone terraces, this wine delivers a palate impression well above its official pedigree and price.

The wine maker integrated into the palate impression notes of smoky vanilla obtained by aging a portion of the wine in new oak barrels. This wine is pure, deeply fruity, and supple.
