Shows serious concentration of fruit for the vintage, with a medium to full body, fine tannins and a juicy finish. Beautiful, pure fruit, with licorice and berries. Needs a few years to come together: try in 2017

Shows some anise and singed spice details, but the woodsy feel of the earlier vintages is much less evident here. Good length and focus.—Non-blind Fonplégade vertical (December 2016). Best from 2020 through 2030. 3,250 cases made. –JM

Planted to 90% merlot 5% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon on 18.5 hectares on the south hillside of St. Emilion. This bottling is sourced from the oldest vines on the property which date to 1954 planted in limestone clay and sand. Purple core with a red rim. Aromas of blueberry jam graphite and spice shape the nose along with fresh earth and mocha scents. The palate proves superb showing balance grippy tannins and racy acidity. Dark ripe plum and vanilla flavors drive the finish. Give this 2-4 years after bottling and enjoy for the following 10-15. Drink 2015-2030.
