Château Fonplégade  2018 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, elegant and offers a small concentration/richness as well as a fine deepness. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy strawberry and small notes of vanilla associated with small touches of fresh flowers as well as fine hints of zan and a subtle hint of lilac. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, fresh and offers a good definition, juiciness, a mineral frame as well as a fine tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy/fresh blackberry, juicy/fresh cassis and small notes of juicy/fresh raspberry associated with small touches of fresh flowers as well as fine hints of chocolate/cocoa, cardamom, caramelization and a very discreet hint of toasted/grilled almond. Tannins are well-built.
