Decanter: Subdued, dark fruit aroma and flavour and a liquorice note as well. Firm and dry on the palate, the minerality adding tension. Slightly chewy finish. 88 Points

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Wine Spectator: his has a very direct beam of raspberry coulis flavors, with flicks of anise and apple wood. Relatively sleek in feel, with just a twinge of plum skin and a light loamy echo at the very end. 88 - 91 Points
Ratings
Jancis Robinson: Juicy, pert, sweet red fruit and a crisp, precise finish. Very pleasing and immediate with a well-integrated smoke note on the fairly lengthy finish. Classic, generous, delicious. (RH) Drink 2017-2025 16.5
Awards
Wine Advocate: The 2015 Château Fonroque has a very perfumed and floral bouquet that instantly satisfies, the new oak neatly folded into the fruit, hints of marmalade and mulberry developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin, impressive depth and density yet without impinging upon the freshness and tension on the finish. What an excellent wine from Alain Moueix. 91 - 93 Points
Other Notes
Grand Cru Classé Saint-Emilion, Chateau Fonroque is primarily renowned for its pioneering approach in organic agriculture - certified since 2006 - and biodynamic - since 2008. Owned by the Moueix family since 1931, it is directed since 2001 by Alain Moueix , agricultural engineer and oenologist. It performs a meticulous and passionate work on its 17 hectares of vineyard planted in tea, ribs and feet of coastline on a beautiful clay-limestone. From Merlot (70% of the blend) and Cabernet Franc (30%), wines of Fonroque show is elegant, fleshy and deep, with pure and white fruit, very fresh and discreet breeding without makeup.
