As our flagship wine, Château Fonplégade is the ultimate expression of our terroir. It is also a wine of impeccable balance, bringing together the finest attributes of our vineyard to create a complex and complete expression of Saint-Emilion winemaking. From our oldest vines grown in clay and limestone rich soils, Château Fonplégade gains its sophisticated signature minerality, as well as its sweet tannins and soft, velvety mouthfeel. Though our old-vine fruit forms the rich, compelling core of Château Fonplégade, a modest amount of grapes from somewhat younger vines is also incorporated in the blend, adding voluptuous black fruit notes and tannic structure. Château Fonplégade is aged for 18 to 24 months in 80% new French oak and 20% one-year-old cooperage.
Tasting notes -
Appearance: This wine presents an incredible deep purple color. Indeed, the first 24 hours of fermentation, the juice came out unusually bright red purple or black for certain tanks.
Nose: There were strong flavors that emerged from the tanks.
Mouth: Lot of fruits and already showing an appealing soft roundness. Incredibly soft tannins supported by a wonderful acidity that provides a remarkably long finish.
