Château Fonplegade 2018 Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé


Wine Advocate
Score: 93-95

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Fonplegade strides confidently out of the glass with bold black cherries, warm plums and black raspberry scents plus hints of cedar chest, pencil shavings, lavender, garrigue and camphor. Full-bodied, rich and packed with expressive black fruits, it has a firm, velvety texture and just enough freshness, finishing long.

James Suckling

This is really refined and beautiful, showing a new approach and reality to the terroir here. I appreciate the strength with finesse. Biodynamic.


Denise and Stephen Adams here succeeded with biodynamically grown fruit, even in 2018. It's definitely concentrated, with the emphasis on black fruits, liquorice, olive paste and dark chocolate. But pull up a chair and sit with it for a while and you start to notice more subtle nuances of flowers and herbs. The juicy, gourmet patisserie side begins to punch out of the glass after five minutes, and once again I'm left admiring what they are doing at this property. 
It's extremely attractive, but I think the balance was better in 2016, when there was just a little more grace in the wine.
