Owned by the Vauthier family of Ausone fame, this is a smart value purchase from St-Emilion. The 2016 is elegant and perfectly balanced, with dark cherry notes and a herbal lift. Château de Fonbel has one of the largest plantations in Bordeaux of the sparsely-found Carménère variety. Juxtaposed with the Merlot that dominates the blend, the wine shows a beautiful purity of fruit. This is an absolute delight.
Rich and crimson-tasting with just a hint of pencil shavings. Very sweet. Just a bit too sweet. Drying end.
A balanced and fruity wine with an almost Burgundian mouthfeel and balance. Medium body and a juicy finish.
