Chateau Fonplegade's vines are situated southwest of the town of Saint-Emilion, just below Ch. Magdelaine on a steep slope of limestone with clay and sandy soils that descends from the plateau. The vines are partly in a natural amphitheatre, facing south with great sun exposure and protection from north winds. The estate was purchased from the Moueix family in 2004 by Denise and Stephen Adams and is now certified organic and biodynamic. The blend is roughly 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc and aging is 50% in new French oak barrels, 30% in one year-old barrels and 10% in concrete and 10% in amphorae. The 2019 has a great balance of plum and dark cherry fruit with some vanilla and woody spice - the aromatics are lush and giving, with subtle complexities starting to emerge after an hour open. The palate is a wave of seductive fruit and layers of tobacco and spice, with a long finish and balanced acidity, making this a prime candidate for steak or fatty meats. It's highly enjoyable now and will continue to evolve nicely over the next 5-20 years.
