Château Fontaine de l’Aubier is located in the heart of the Médoc, neighbouring some of the greatest classed growth châteaux, and perched on the famous gravel soils that suit Cabernet and Merlot grapes so well. Five generations of the Fauchey family have succeeded each other at the château, always with the same approach to the task of making wine, starting with the greatest care in the vineyards, weeding and pruning by hand to avoid soil erosion, and adding absolutely nothing in the winery. Such fastidiousness pays off in quality. Top American wine critic James Suckling has awarded this wine an impressive 92–93 points for its silky tannins and flavourful finish. We think it’s a treat to serve with the best rack of lamb or tenderloin steak.

"Juicy and fruity wine with blackberry and mushroom character and silky tannins. Exciting stuff here!" James Suckling
