Château Fonplégade Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2008

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

A major “sleeper of the vintage,” the 2008 offers fabulous aromas and flavors of black currants, black cherries, loamy soil, graphite and earth. Dense and supple textured with abundant fat and concentration in its medium to full-bodied, complex, evolved personality, it should drink well for 15+ years.

Saturated medium ruby. Aromas of blackberry, kirsch, violet and dark chocolate, along with some tarry high tones. Densely packed and impressively concentrated, with fine-grained flavors of sweet dark cherry, currant and graphite. Offers surprising lift in the middle palate and finishes with broad, chocolatey tannins. This has the density to evolve in bottle for 10 or 15 years.

91% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc , and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in new French oak. Deep ruby core with paler rim. Black cherry and spice aromas seem to spring from the glass. The palate packs an initial wallop of flavor, with ripe dark berry and subt... Eddie Wolowski. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Fonplegade 750ml
