A beautifully textured wine, velvet and silk with black currant sweetness so alluring.

Château Fonplegade

The impressive 18.5ha property, situated close to the famous Château Angelus, belongs to Americans Denise and Stephen Adams who, with the advice of Michel Rolland and Stéphane Derenoncourt are now producing one of the best value for money Grand Crus in St.Emilion.
This wine features a beautiful blazing ruby red colour. It reveals a profoundly and fresh cherry nose with a touch of exotics fruits and ending with subtle floral notes. The palate balances a precise structure with powerful and vibrating energy, a beautiful touch of black fruits ending with a salty and chalky final. The fine-grain tannins reveals all the delicacy of this vintage. The 2020 vintage has all the potential of a great wine for the coming decades.
Delicious with beef ribs with mushrooms, bacon and potatoes.
Produced biodynamically. Aged for between 16 and 18 months in 50% new French oak barrels, 30% one year barrels, 10% cement eggs and 10% amphora.
