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.

Smells

Plums, raspberry and spicy notes

Tastes

Supple tannins support the ripe dark berry and black plum fruits. The toasty oak is well integrated imparting charming vanilla characters to the finish. Black cherry and red liquorice notes linger on the warm spiced finish. Enjoy now 2024, but really drink it regularly now at this price, a delicious house claret!
