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. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

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.

Very powerful and chewy with super concentration of tannins and richness. Full and superbly structure. Made from certified organically grown grapes. Best ever from here. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

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. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

A Stéphane Derenoncourt wine. Very dark crimson. Silky ripe freshness. Very seductive and well balanced. Racy and lifted. A bit forward, but nothing exaggerated here. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2022-2032
