2012 Fonplégade, St-Emilion

SKU #1201168 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Fonplegade, a major success for the vintage, possesses a dense purple color along with sweet blueberry, black raspberry and crushed chalk-like notes intermixed with a hint of spring flowers. Sweet tannins, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and excellent fruit, texture, opulence and richness suggest it will drink well for 12-15 years. Inner quote mark (4/2013)

90-92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Owned by American Stephen Adams, Château Fonplégade showcases a rich and modern style of wine with smooth tannins and a velvet texture. Intensely concentrated on the finish. Inner quote mark (4/2013)

89-92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Features a core of plum, raspberry and cassis, encased for now in polished toast and singed anise notes. A frankly modern style, with solid fruit, flesh and depth. Inner quote mark (4/2013)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Plenty of fruit and integrated tannins with berries, spices and fresh herbs. Full and chewy. Well done. Inner quote mark (4/2013)

87-89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Glass-staining purple-ruby. Sweet raspberry, dark cherry and cinnamon on the nose. Clean and juicy on the palate, with dense dark berry and plum flavors complicated by flowers and smoke. Finishes with sneaky, perfumed persistence and building peppery tannins that remain smooth. A very good showing. Inner quote mark (6/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Deep dark cherry colour. Refined, almost peppery nose with lots of pure dark fruit. Sweet malty/chocolate oak on the palate and a bit flat on the finish. Tannins are ripe and a bit chewy. Inner quote mark (4/2013)
