The Peyronie family, the current owner of Château Fonbadet, has ancient winemaking roots in Pauillac. Their winemaking lineage goes back to the year 1700 according to public records of the time. The Peyronie family has serious roots in other Bordeaux houses in the Pauillas appellation. Pierre’s grandfather was estate manager of Château Lafite Rothschild, while his wife’s grandfather was estate manager at Château Mouton Rothschild. Pierre’s father, Robert, handled the estate in a dynamic forward way between WWI and WWII; he created a vineyard using vines on the verge of distinction or being sold at auction. Today, Pascale, Pierre’s daughter, has taken over after 20 years of training. Its classification is in the makings of the future fifth growths of Pauillac.
This is an incredible wine of the great appellation of the Pauillac appellation. It is a blend of all five of the great Bordeaux varieties.
