Tasting Notes

The 2016 Chemin Royal has an intense, quite generous bouquet with blackberry, boysenberry and crushed violet aromas, the new oak here is nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, plenty of graphite infused black fruit and a tightly wound and persistent finish that offers plenty of grip. There is great potential here.

From one of several estates owned by the Chanfreau family, this wine is packed with fruit. Its smooth texture masks solid tannins that will allow it to age. The aftertaste reflects the juicy, fresh character of the vintage.

The Producer

Château Chemin Royal

Located along the old Roman road named “Chemin des Vins”, it is quite naturaly that Leo Chanfreau renamed it “CHEMIN ROYAL” in reference to the voyage of King Henry VIII in Medoc. In 1965, Léo replanted the vines and developed his estate on the beautiful southeastern slopes of Puy de Menjon, recently classified in the communal appellation Moulis en Médoc.

Like an amphitheater, the vineyard faces the château. Only the creation of AOC has split it between the Listrac-Médoc Appellation and the Moulis Appellation in Médoc. Its vineyards occupy the highest point of the Medoc (43 m) and its gravelly slopes.

On these magnificent gravelly slopes are produced a Listrac, Château Fonréaud, and a Moulis, Château Chemin Royal, but also a white Bordeaux, Le Cygne de Fonréaud, which is the delight of lovers of great white wines.

The vine is cultivated in the greatest respect for the plant and the environment according to the precepts of the Cousinié Method.
