Château Fonplégade Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé, Bordeaux, 2016
A blend of Organic Merlot and Cabernet Franc grown biodynamically aged in 50% new French oak and concrete vats.
"Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Fonplegade opens with a very savory nose of smoked meats, tapenade, sautéed herbs and beef drippings over a core of plum preserves, chocolate-covered cherries and cedar chest plus wafts of violets and cigars. Medium to full-bodied, the palate possesses both intensity and elegance, with the black fruit layers superbly framed by firm, fine-grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and mineral laced." 96+/100 Lisa Perrotti-Brown robertparker.com
