2020 Fonplégade, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1539512 93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Emerging from a great hillside terroir on the Côte Pavie, the 2020 Château Fonplégade should be up there with the top vintages from this estate. Lots of cassis, blackberries, and earthy, violet notes define the nose, and I love its purity, freshness, and precision. These traits all carry over to the palate as well, and it’s medium to full-bodied, with terrific tannins and a finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep purple-black colored, the 2020 Fonplegade offers up notes of chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries and blackberry preserves, followed by hints of smoked meats, cinnamon toast and potpourri. The medium to full-bodied palate bursts with juicy black fruits, supported by velvety tannins and well-balanced acidity, finishing long and fragrant. (LPB) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

93-94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A solid red with blackberry, blackcurrant and spice character. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Nice depth of fruit and focus. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2020 Fonplégade is sensual, polished and understated. This mid-weight, silky Saint-Émilion has more finesse than power. All the elements are so nicely balanced. Crushed rose petal, mint, raspberry jam and mocha all grace the 2020. This is a very classy wine from Denise and Stephen Adams. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2021)
