Château de Fonbel 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 

The nose is concentrated and fruity. It reveals notes of cassis, sour cherry and small notes of small berries associated with small touches of cassis, liquorice as well as discreet hints of spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a small suavity, a good freshness, a small concentration, a small acidulous frame, a good definition, juiciness, as well as a good finesse of the grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy cassis, juicy blackberry and small notes of sour cherry associated with small touches of ripe berries, licorice, cornflower as well as discreet hints of spices and an imperceptible touch of chocolate.
