Ch Fonplegade, Grand Cru St Emilion 2017


Tasting Note

One of the oldest vineyards in St Emilion, there is evidence of it being used for wine production by the Romans, the actual Chateau was built in the 1850s. Purchased by Americans Denise & Stephen Adams in 2004, they have spent a fortune renovating the Chateau and winery, and also embarked on an extensive replatning program- removing the Cab Sauv vines and converting the vineyard and winemaking to Biodynamic status, (they were certified organic in 2013, and Biodynamic in 2020). The 2017 is 90% Merlot and 10% Cab. Franc, wild yeast fermentation and surprisingly elegant and floral for 14.5% abv
