Château Fonplégade Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

An intense, full bodied and well defined wine with a dramatically long finish, Château Fonplégade possesses deep purple color, sweet notes of red and black fruits and a hint of both crushed rock and new oak.

Oak. Good balance. Concentrated, full of deep fruit and roasted aroma.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 92Now owned by an American syndicate, this hillside property, not far from Angelus, has been completely renovated, and the quality has risen with each new vintage. The finest wine Ive tasted over the last three decades is their 2005, which exhibits a dense purple color as well as a sweet nose of black currant and cherry jam intermixed with licorice, smoke, espresso roast, and scorched earth. Full-bodied with impressive concentration, a beautiful texture, and a long, 40+ second finish, this superb wine is unquestionably a sleeper of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2030.Wine Tasting NotesChateau Fonplegade possesses deep purple color with solid concentration throughout. Fills the nose with hints of fresh berries and delicate graphite. An intense, full bodied and well defined wine with a dramatically long finish, sweet notes of red and black fruits and a hint of both crushed rock and new oak.
