Winemaker's Notes:

This 2010 presents an incredible deep purple color. Lot of fruits and already showing an appealing soft roundness on the palate. Incredibly soft tannins supported by a wonderful acidity that provides a remarkably long finish.

Grape Varieties: 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc

About Chateau Fonplegade:

For centuries, the vine rows of Chateau Fonplegade have been the source for some of Saint-Emilion’s most coveted winegrapes. Grown in ideal limestone and clay soils, and nourished in drier years by the deep under-ground water source that feeds the fountain of Fonplegade, their vines benefit from a harmonious relationship between the elements—a relationship that yields wines of uncommon grace and grandeur. As stewards of these cherished vine rows, they cultivate their vineyards using strict ECOCERT organic practices, both to preserve the purity and character of their grapes, and to ensure the legacy of Chateau Fonplegade for generations to come.
