Ch. Fonplégade 2018 Saint-Émilion


3 X 150cl
6 X 75cl

American owned with no expense spared and a rare success for a Biodynamically farmed estate in 2018, surviving the mildew attacks of the spring that caught so many others. A classic St. Emilion style with rich, svelte fruit, black cherries, plums and herbs, and a touch of acidity to carry the fruit.

Antonio Galloni: 92-95

“Fonplégade is rich, layered and sumptuous, to a degree it has not been before. Raspberry jam, mocha, espresso and licorice all burst out of the glass. Sensual and alluring, Fonplégade is absolutely gorgeous in 2018. The oak is just a bit pronounced at this stage, but the wine appears to have all of the natural depth to handle it. The 2018 is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.”

Robert Parker: 93-95

“Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Fonplegade strides confidently out of the glass with bold black cherries, warm plums and black raspberry scents plus hints of cedar chest, pencil shavings, lavender, garrigue and camphor. Full-bodied, rich and packed with expressive black fruits, it has a firm, velvety texture and just enough freshness, finishing long.”
