JS 96
jamessuckling.com, March 2016
(JS95-96 points) Very powerful and chewy with super concentration of tannins and richness. Full and superbly structured. Made from certified organically grown grapes. Best ever from here.

(JL94-96 points) Forest floor, truffle, smoke, licorice and sweet, ripe plum and cherry notes, this wine is sensuous, silky and packed with fresh fruits and crushed rocks that leave you with an elegant sensation of just-picked, sun-ripened cherries. Harvested from September 18 to October 6, the wine was made from a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, reaching 14% alcohol with a pH of 3.5. This is the first vintage for Stephane Derenoncourt at the estate.

(AG91-94 points) One of the more intriguing wines of the year, the 2015 Fonplégade is powerful and exuberant, yet retains a mid-weight sense of structure. Black cherry, plum, spice, menthol and licorice are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. Dark, sumptuous and impeccable in its balance, the 2015 shows the more modern side of Saint-Émilion. This is a highly promising showing from Fonplégade in the first vintage made by consulting oenologists Stéphane Derenoncourt and Romain Bocchio.
WS 93
Wine Spectator, April 2016
(WS90-93 points) Focused and very pretty, with a pure, unadorned beam of raspberry and plum coulis flavors that show excellent length, while light anise and apple wood hints emerge slowly on the finish.

(WA90-92 points) The 2015 Fonplegade has a tightly wound bouquet, broodier than its peers, a subtle marine influence filtering through the red and black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin, perhaps falling a little short of the sophistication and complexity that I was anticipating coming through on the nose. Perhaps this is a wine not showing on the day, because this estate can produce excellent Saint Émilion wine, hence the question mark against my score for now. - Neal Martin
