Medium-bodied, it has a chewy line and plenty of earth-inspired flavors, finishing just a tad grippy. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

This was the last vintage with Alain Moueix as the owner - in 2017 he sold the estate to a French insurance company, although he is likely to continue as consultant for the foreseeable future. This has an impressive...   This was the last vintage with Alain Moueix as the owner - in 2017 he sold the estate to a French insurance company, although he is likely to continue as consultant for the foreseeable future. This has an impressive texture right from the start, with silky black and red fruit that's well knitted together, along with coffee and chocolate. It has clear potential but needs time. 30% new oak. 50hl/ha yield.

Clearly, the best wine ever produced at Fonroque. The nose is complicated by hints of marzipan, black raspberry and stone. The wine is silky, fresh and fleshy with length and depth.

This has a slightly exotic edge, with warmed fig, crushed plum and steeped raspberry notes, laden with anise, black tea and singed apple wood accents. Though the fruit gushes, this shows focused energy through the finish...   This has a slightly exotic edge, with warmed fig, crushed plum and steeped raspberry notes, laden with anise, black tea and singed apple wood accents. Though the fruit gushes, this shows focused energy through the finish, with a latent graphite hint. Drink now through 2035. — J.M.

The medium-bodied palate offers fleshy ripe black and red fruit laced with orange peel and cedar, building confidently in the mouth toward a precise finish. Alain Moueix’s Saint-Émilion impressed in barrel and just about delivers in bottle. -- Neal Martin
