Description

Certified organic since the 2013 vintage, Ch. Fongaban whose origins date from the 17th century, is located just a few kilometres away from Saint-Emilion. 34-hectares of vineyards are planted on clay and chalky soils in the commune of Puisseguin with average vine age now over 20-years-old. This 2016 release is blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. Aged in French oak, the Merlot dominance makes for a rich and supple wine.
