Chateau Fonroque situated in St Emilion, biodynamic since 2002, a trendsetter worth noting, very few estates took on this inspirational farming practice back then and especially not in Bordeaux. Part of the Alain Moueix portfolio, a man dedicated to hard work and producing excellent quality wines. Biodynamic practices go hand in hand with a close connection to the vineyard and its resulting wines. Combine this with the extraordinary 2016 vintage and this is a wine for your cellar. Maybe re-mortgaging the house is one step too far, but it is a consideration… especially for a wine of this pedigree and quality and its relatively cheap price compared with many other top wines from Bordeaux from this year.
subtle and an almost shy bouquet of blackberries, kirsch, black cherries, delicate cassis notes, box scent nuances with fresh tobacco leaves, and graphite.
the palate has medium weight with supple, smooth tannins that lure you in from the initial taste, poised and engaging but in harmony with the mid-palate fruit. Wonderful flavours of dark berry fruits, cedar, coffee notes, lead pencil and tertiary hints of forest floor, leather, and spice. A sleek, stylish wine with fine minerality that speaks of its home. Cellar in a temperature-controlled environment for 15years+ and reap the rewards. Serve with beef, duck or lamb.
