Château Fonplegade was renovated in the 2000’s and certified organic in 2013. Owner Stephen & Denise Adams, who also own Chateau l’Enclos in Pomerol, consulted renown oenologist Michel Rolland to make powerful wines from the right bank.
Generous black fruits and mineral notes. Rich and big on the palate with velvety and sweet tannins. Great length.

Pure, dark chocolate spread, liquorice root and slate edging. Rich fruits, but with crushed mint leaves gathering pace though the palate to lift things up. Just the nose itself would keep you occupied for a good while, and on the palate it jumps out of the glass. Seriously impressive stuff, clear minerality, pulsing with life. The 2015 vintage was seen at the time as being better in St Emilion but with every year that passes it becomes more clear that 2016 is the one with real legs. One of the real bargains of the vintage...- 96 pts Jane Anson, Decanter Magazine
