2012 Château Fonplégade, Grand Cru Classé St-Emilion

The 2012 Fonplegade, a major success for the vintage, possesses a dense purple color along with sweet blueberry, black raspberry and crushed chalk-like notes intermixed with a hint of spring flowers. Sweet tannins, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and excellent fruit, texture, opulence and richness suggest it will drink well for 12-15 years.

America’s Adams family (not the one from the haunted hill) owns Fonplegade and they have done a phenomenal job since they took charge. They have also reached across the border into Pomerol to resurrect one of my favorites from 30+ years ago, Chateau L’Enclos.
