Château Fonroque

The history of the Moueix family started in Bordeaux in 1931 when Alain’s great grandparents bought Fonroque. In 2001 Alain Moueix was appointed to manage his family estate. To breathe some new life into this property of 20 hectares Alain converted the estate over to certified organic and biodynamic vine growing methods. The results have been outstanding and Château Fonroque's limestone soils enable the wines to express themselves and develop more fruit expression and a mineral almost crystalline structure.
