Château de Fonbel St. Emilion 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

For the uninitiated, Ch. de Fonbel (from the same stable as the legendary<br/>Ausone) represents one of the best value wines available on the market. A St.<br/>Emilion that is classic in style as opposed to the more modern, extracted<br/>format - Fonbel hasan elegance and finesserunning through it that<br/>so many St. Emilion wines lack today.The 2006 is cool, elegant and<br/>balanced. Cherriesand white pepper spice burst into the nose and there<br/>ischarmingblackcurrant fruit on the palate, with surprising<br/>complexity. This is a bargain at the price.<br/>

Bright red-ruby. Vibrant nose offers blackberry, licorice, mint and minerals. Juicy, penetrating dark berry and crushed rock flavors lifted by violet. Pure and sweet, with firm acids and calcaire energy contributing grip and clarity. The tannins are ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Moulin St Georges 750ml
