Average Score 89.86

Composed of 70% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 7% Carmenere, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Fonbel has a classic nose of warm red plums, cigar box and black plums with nuances of redcurrants, Sichuan pepper and tar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers a lot of mid-palate fruit with lovely plush tannins and a long refreshing finish. Nov 2018, www.robertparker.com
Rich autumnal hedgerow packed with ripe blackberry fruits and overlaid with a fresh, herbal, spicy edge that pulls the mid-palate inwards and allows it to expand on the finish. Expertly done and very enjoyable. 70% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 7% Carmenere. From the Vauthier stable. Apr 2017, www.decanter.com, Drink: 2025-2040
A balanced and fruity wine with an almost Burgundian mouthfeel and balance. Medium body and a juicy finish. Mar 2017, www.jamessuckling.com
The 2016 de Fonbel is soft, supple and quite pretty. Sweet, floral aromatics and gently lilting small red fruits give the 2016 its delicate, gracious personality. A model of understatement and class, the 2016 should drink well pretty much right out of the gate. Today, the 2016 is a touch compact. It will be interesting to see if it fleshes out a bit more during its aging. Apr 2017, www.vinous.com
The 2016 Fonbel is a blend of 70% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 7% Carmenere picked from 29 September until 18 October at 50 hectoliters per hectare. It has a pretty cranberry and blackcurrant-scented bouquet, quite transparent and terroir-driven with nicely integrated oak (30% aged in new oak). The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, a lively and breezy Saint Emilion, not the most complex you will find but full of personality. The freshness suggests that this will drink early, and that Carmenere just gives it something different (although Pauline Vauthier mentioned that she will regraft some of those vines).

Rich and crimson-tasting with just a hint of pencil shavings. Very sweet. Just a bit too sweet. Drying end. Apr 2017, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2030
This fruity wine offers soft tannins and crisp black-currant tones. It is spicy and bright, with plenty of acidity on the finish. Apr 2017, Roger Voss, www.wineenthusiast.com
