Now American-owned, Fonplegade has been pushing the envelop of high quality over recent vintages. The full-bodied, powerful 2010 reveals intense, concentrated red and black fruit characteristics, undeniable minerality, a perfumed style and authoritative flavors that linger on the palate. The tannins are noticeable, so this wine will benefit from 5-6 years of cellaring and keep for at least two decades.
Focused and precise, with pretty dark fruits and hints of vanilla. Full and silky. Very attractive.
Dark linzer torte and currant preserves notes are allied to a solid graphite spine and backed by a licorice-infused finish. Drink now through 2021.
Very deep crimson - rather lustrous and healthy looking. Very sweet start - very slightly raw purple berries sensation but certainly very vital and attention grabbing without excessively dry tannins on the end.
