2009 Fonroque

Average critic rating : 90.33 points



The dense plum/purple-hued 2009 Fonroque offers up notes of sandy, loamy soil, sagebrush, sweet cherries and black currants. Medium to full-bodied, rich and moderately tannic, it is one of the more firmly structured, reserved 2009s. Everything needed for a long evolution (two decades or more) is present, but this offering should be forgotten for 5-7 years. ||Owned by Alain Moueix, this bio-dynamically run estate sits on flat clay, sand and gravel soils a kilometer or so before the entrance to the village of St.-Emilion in the direction of Libourne. Wine Advocate.February, 2012



Tasted at the Association de Crus Classé tasting at Grand Pontet. I like the definition and the “coolness” on the bouquet: delineated black fruits laced with blueberry. The palate has a rounded, sinewy entry, thick layers of cassis and blueberry, delineated on the finish with good length. Not my style of Saint Emilion but I do think this is well crafted for its genre. Tasted March 2010.



Very dark crimson. Super- ripe, glossy, ticks the boxes but somehow lacks a little core and personality. A little sour on the finish.
