After the birth of the New French Clarets in 1708, on the initiative of the Pontac family at Haut-Brion, European aristocracy was taken with a fancy for wines. In an undeniably “drinks fad” context, with coffee, cocoa, Champagne, and Port, Bordeaux wines were in great demand.

The Château Fonbadet vineyard, exclusively planted on gravel soil, had already existed since the previous century.
