The 2016 Fonroque has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and opens with black cherries, kirsch, warm blueberries and spice box scents plus hints of tobacco and pencil lead. Medium-bodied, it has a chewy line and plenty of earth-inspired flavors, finishing just a tad grippy. Nov 2018, www.robertparker.com
The 2016 Fonroque, part of the portfolio of Alain Moueix, put in a killer performance this year. It has a lighter bouquet compared to its peers with dusky black fruit, quite tertiary and introverted at first, although it does gain more expression and vigor with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin on the entry, very refined and poised without compensating in terms of fruit. I adore the finish here, really sleek and stylish with very fine mineralité and classicism. Bravo Alain Moueix! Apr 2017, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2021-2045
Rich damson in colour, with a clear vibrancy to the nose. This must be one of the best ever wines from this property, combining an almost menacing depth and power with an unmistakable St-Émilion raspberry fruit ripeness, a brush of fern and violet florality and the saline lick of limestone. 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. Organic and biodynamic. Apr 2017, www.decanter.com, Drink: 2025-2040
This has grip and focus, with a prominent chalky edge harnessing the core of cassis and black cherry preserve flavors. Pretty spice accents through the finish. Restrained style, and solidly done. Apr 2017, James Molesworth, www.winespectator.com
This wine is superripe and generous in fruit. The contrast is with the dry core of tannins. Juicy blackberry fruits are rich and opulent, cut by acidity and supported by the tannins. Apr 2017, Roger Voss, www.wineenthusiast.com
A little simple but this shows some attractive blackberry, chocolate and spice character. Medium body and firm tannins. From organically grown grapes. Mar 2017, www.jamessuckling.com
Alain Moueix consults. 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc. Concentrated, meaty nose. Dense and robust. Dry end and very solid. Not so much juice. Apr 2017, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2024-2033
The 2016 Fonroque is soft, easygoing and quite pretty, all of which will make it a good choice for drinking pretty much upon release. Succulent dark cherry and plum notes give the wine its juicy, fleshy personality. Hints of mocha, espresso, licorice and spice add layers of nuance, but this is a fruit-driven Saint-Émilion built for near- and medium-term pleasure. The only thing the 2016 lacks is a bit of persistence on the finish.
