Critical Acclaim

"The 2012 Fonplegade, a major success for the vintage, possesses a dense purple color along with sweet blueberry, black raspberry and crushed chalk-like notes intermixed with a hint of spring flowers. Sweet tannins, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and excellent fruit, texture, opulence and richness suggest it will drink well for 12-15 years.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points"
93 Points

"Features a core of plum, raspberry and cassis, encased for now in polished toast and singed anise notes. A frankly modern style, with solid fruit, flesh and depth.
Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"
92 Points

"Owned by American Stephen Adams, Château Fonplégade showcases a rich and modern style of wine with smooth tannins and a velvet texture. Intensely concentrated on the finish.
Barrel Sample: 90-92 Points"
92 Points

"Plenty of fruit and integrated tannins with berries, spices and fresh herbs. Full and chewy. Well done.
Barrel Sample: 90-91 Points"
