Description

"Bordeaux En-Primeur - Stocks arrive June 2013 (price includes GST but exclusive of landing fees and duty payable on arrival)92-94 Robert Parker ""American-owned, Fonplegade has been pushing the envelop of high quality over recent vintages. The full-bodied, powerful 2010 reveals intense, concentrated red and black fruit characteristics, undeniable minerality, a perfumed style and authoritative flavors that linger on the palate. The tannins are noticeable, so this wine will benefit from 5-6 years of cellaring and keep for at least two decades." Robert ParkerChâteau Fonplégade, Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé, is a 44-acre property. It is located on the south-side of the famous plateau of Saint Emilion, near the Châteaux Ausone, Bel Air, Canon and Magdelaine. Looking at the Roman pathways still visible today, Fonplégade could be one of the oldest vineyards of Saint-Emilion. Fonplégade means 'full fountain' or 'bent fountain'. The meaning comes from its clay soil, which supports the formation of springs on the upper side of the property. In 1863, Château Fonplégade was sold to the Duke of Morny, step brother of Napoleon the 3rd, and to his sister the Countess of Galard. Stephen Adams bought it in 2004. The year 2009 is the start of the biodynamic production at Fonplegade."
