    Region: St-Emilion, Bordeaux, France

    Varietal: Bordeaux Red Blends

    Item no. 122440

    Winemaker's Notes:

    This 2010 presents an incredible deep purple color. Lot of fruits and already showing an appealing soft roundness on the palate. Incredibly soft tannins supported by a wonderful acidity that provides a remarkably long finish.

    Grape Varieties: 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc

    Critical Acclaim:

    Concentrated black fruits intermixed with spring flowers, some high class, subtle toasty oak, graphite and a touch of blackberry and cassis all jump from the glass of this dense, full-bodied, formidably endowed, massive wine. It needs a good 5-7 years of cellaring. This could turn out to be one of the longest-lived wines ever made at Fonplegade, lasting 25-30 or more years.
    Rating: 94+

    The Wine Advocate

    Very jammy fruit, where the sweetness seems to dominate. It is accessible, the tannins open, opulent, with a ripe structure. It works though, as a rich wine.

    Wine Enthusiast

    Focused and precise, with pretty dark fruits and hints of vanilla. Full and silky. Very attractive.

    James Suckling

    Dark linzer torte and currant preserves notes are allied to a solid graphite spine and backed by a licorice-infused finish. Drink now through 2021.
