Chateau Fonplegade Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2012
Dating back to the Gallo-Roman era, the vineyard is planted on clay-limestone soil. This wine is very typical of the appellation, with intense colour and powerful, delicious tannins.
This is a wine that improves by being kept for a few years. Aged for 15 months in 1-year-old French oak barrels. Intense bouquet with blackberry and redberry fruits and hints of leather. Full-bodied and round with elegant acidity and good length.
