Château de Fonbel St. Emilion 2007
Made by the same team as the legendary Ch. Ausone it is hardly surprising thatFonbel's 2007 is so impressive. Made with 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon,7% Petit Verdot and 3% of the rarely seen CarmenÃ¨re, the wine's pure nose ofplums and smoky black fruit leads seamlessly into a dense yet finely texturedpalate of concentrated, cool blackberries and peppery spice. This classy,succulent wine is easily as good as many St Emilions double the price and willbe impossible to resist almost as soon as it is shipped.
