Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Critical Acclaim

"Since this estate was acquired by the Adams family of America, who hired consulting oenologist Michel Rolland, the quality has soared. The 2011 Fonplegade is another tour de force. It boasts an inky/blue/purple color in addition to copious notes of charcoal, camphor, blackberries, blueberries and spring flowers. Opulent, fleshy, deep and impressively built, it will be drinkable in 3-4 years or can be cellared for two decades or more. Kudos to Fonplegade!

"A bold, modern style, with overt spice aromatics and mouthfilling blueberry compote, plum sauce and fig paste flavors. Dark anise and graphite fill in on the finish. Not shy, but pulls it off.
Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"
92 Points

"Solid wine for the vintage with dark fruits and sweet tobacco. Full body, with silky tannins and a balanced finish.
Barrel Sample: 90-91 Points"
