Average Score 90.8

The 2017 Fonbadet is positively stellar. Plump, juicy and impeccably refined, the 2017 has so much to recommend it. Silky tannins wrap around a plush core of bright, red-toned fruit in this super-expressive inviting Pauillac. Fonbadet is not the most complex Pauillac readers will come across, but its balance and sense of harmony are simply impeccable. Tasted three times.
A tight and juicy red with blackberry and black-cherry character. Medium-bodied, tannic and focused.
A 70/30 split of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the Peyronie family, the 2017 Château Fonbadet is a serious effort revealing a deep purple color as well as abundant aromas and flavors of blueberries, cassis, graphite and spring flowers. It has the classic cool minerality of the vintage, medium to full-bodied richness, and ripe tannin. Give it a few years and it should keep for two decades.
The 2017 Fonbadet, picked 25 September to 6 October, has commendable ripeness and vigor on the nose: blackberry, raspberry coulis, a touch of cassis and pencil lead, all nicely detailed. The palate is a little dry and austere on the first showing but shows far more fruit at my final tasting on the final day in mid-April, packed full of blackberry and boysenberry fruit with an undercurrent of pencil lead towards the finish. Tasted three times with consistent notes.
The tentative blend of the 2017 Fonbadet is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it gives notions of crushed black berries, black cherries and baked plums with hints of licorice and dark chocolate plus an earthy undercurrent. The palate is medium-bodied, firm and grainy with plenty of freshness and a savory finish. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com
