PRODUCTION: 3500 CasesBiodynamic farming since 2009, the estate was certified organic in 2013. OWNERS: Denise & Stephen Adams OENOLOGISTS / CONSULTANTS: Michel Rolland & Stéphane Derenoncourt Chateau Fonplegade today, is one of the oldest vineyards in Saint Emilion. Antonio Galloni 94 points - “One of the more intriguing wines of the year, the 2015 Fonplégade is powerful and exuberant, yet retains a mid-weight sense of structure. Black cherry, plum, spice, menthol and licorice are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. Dark, sumptuous and impeccable in its balance, the 2015 shows the more modern side of Saint-Émilion. This is a highly promising showing from Fonplégade in the first vintage made by consulting oenologists Stéphane Derenoncourt and Romain Bocchio.” James Suckling 95 points - “A gorgeous and layered red showcasing blackberry, blueberry and mineral aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and polished with impressive tannins. Shows the flamboyance of the estate. Give it time to come around. From organic grapes. Drink in 2022.”
