Now farmed organically, this wine exhibits an inky purple color, a gorgeous nose of blackberry and cassis fruit, sweet cherries, licorice and spice. It is full-bodied, ripe, opulent, pure and a great success in this vintage. The wine should drink well for 15 or more years. - Robert Parker

(NM90-92 points) The Fonplegade 2012 has a lovely ripe, pure, floral bouquet with copious dark cherry and blueberry fruit that retains grace and elegance. The palate is ripe and decadent on the entry with layers of toasty ripe fruit, but it retains sufficient acidity to keep everything in balance and there finish is cohesive and long. Very fine.

A well-crafted and refined red with plums, raspberries and hints of minerals. Precise and polished. Full body, fine tannins and a long finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Better in 2018.

(WE90-92 points) Owned by American Stephen Adams, Château Fonplégade showcases a rich and modern style of wine with smooth tannins and a velvet texture. Intensely concentrated on the finish.

Initially deep and powerful, the 2012 Fonplégade finds greater finesse with time in the glass, while never losing its essential energy. Hints of rose petal, crushed raspberries and dash of white pepper add lift to the intense finish. The 2012 needs time to unwind, but it is impressive, that much is clear.

Wine Spectator, March 2015
A slightly pumped-up style, with ample toast and warm fruitcake notes leading the way, revealing a core of plum and raspberry coulis flavors. Lightly firm toast lines the finish, but there's good briary energy underneath... A slightly pumped-up style, with ample toast and warm fruitcake notes leading the way, revealing a core of plum and raspberry coulis flavors. Lightly firm toast lines the finish, but there's good briary energy underneath as well. For fans of powerful wines. Best from 2016 through 2022. 3,500 cases made. –JM
