Château Fonroque 2008 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, elegant, gourmand, harmonious and offers a beautiful finesse of the grain as well as a very fine power. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry and small black fruits associated with discreet spikes of flowers, plum, wild red berries, chocolate as well as an imperceptible hint of pepper (in the background). The mouth is fresh, fruity, juicy and offers fluidity, a small suavity, dynamism, gourmandise as well as an acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, black cherry and small notes of crushed /cooked cassis associated with small touches of plum, ripe raspberry, tonka bean and very discreet toasted hints. Good length.
