Château de Fonbel Grand Cru St. Emilion 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"Alain Vauthier has spared no effort or money to drive up the level of qualityat Fonbel, just as he has at his more celebrated properties, Ausone and MoulinSt.-Georges. Fonbel is an up-and-coming estate, possessing class, roundness andan appealing approachability even in youth. 2004 was a slightly cool vintageand only those proprietors who worked assiduously in the vineyard made excitingwine. This has the soft, plummy depth associated with ripe Merlot, a richtexture in the mouth, and will prove an excellent accompaniment to lamb, lightgame dishes or hard cheese." (Alun Griffiths MW- BBR Wine Director)
