Château Fonplegade 2012 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

Château Fonplegade 2012 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, elegant, fine and relatively gourmand. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis and fine hints of plum, blueberry associated with a discrete touch of violet, cassis bud, a hint of mocha as well as discreet hints of spices and a discreet hint of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, gourmand, elegant, fine, well-balanced, large, aerial, well-defined and offers a mineral frame and a nice silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, juicy Quetsche plum associated with fine notes of cassis, crunchy wild strawberry, cassis bud (discreet), violets as well as touches of zan, tobacco, discreet hints of chocolate and discreet hints of toasted oak. Tannins are fine. Good length.
