Château Fonrazade is found next to the famous Premier Grand Cru Classé Château Angelus, on the southern slopes of the Saint-Emilion hills, less than 1 kilometer from the medieval village.
The vineyard stretches over 13 hectares (about 32 acres) of sandy brown soils, down the south-western slope of the Coteau de Mazerat.
Based on numerous tastings and analysis in an effort to squeeze the very best from the vintage in terms of structure, bouquet, flavor and aging predispositions, the final say-so on what will be offered belongs to Fabienne Balotte, who aims to optimize the entire wine-making process.
All the wines are bottled at the Château. The choice and quality of the corks, the type of bottles, the upkeep of sanitary conditions, everything is focused towards an optimal final conditioning, and to ensure the best ageing potential of the wine. Carefully kept in temperature controlled cellars, the wine improves as it ages in the bottles. After several years, once deemed ready, the wines may be offered for sale.
