Add to favourites

The 2015s from St-Emilion are already approachable, and this is juicy and fine, with lovely tension and very well-balanced tannins. Juicy fruit on the finish, this is delicious today.

Château Fonplégade represents the purest and most typical expression of our terroir. Enriched with a mosaic of ideal soils and a wonderful diversity of geology and geography, our vineyard is divided into 27 parcels on 45.5 acres. These hand-farmed blocks comprise the artist’s palette of our terroir, providing a wealth of flavor components for the development of our wines.
With an impeccable balance between fruit, complexity and aromatic length, this wine is characterized by a sophisticated minerality, consistent from year to year, with soft and supple tannins and a velvety texture. It is made from the estate’s oldest vines, meticulously hand-farmed using organic and biodynamic practices to bring out the finest quality in each cluster. Predominantly Merlot, the blend includes just enough Cabernet Franc to imbue the wine with an elegant tannic structure.
Château Fonplégade is aged 16-20 months in 50% new French oak barrels, 30% in 1-year-old French oak barrels and 10% in egg-shaped concrete vessels and 10% in amphoras.
