Tasting Note:

Alain Vauthier's range of St Emilions are the best we can remember tasting. This 16 hectare estate on the St Emilion plain has a sandy, gravelly terroir, but despite the humble situation, Fonbel produces some sensational wines. A blend of 66% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 7% Carmenere, the 2010 Fonbel possesses wonderful energy, a refined bouquet of purple fruit, bitter sweet cherries and spice. The palate is pure and sensual with long flavours of forest fruits and mûre sauvage. Likely to be a great value buy.
