Château Fonroque St Emilion Grand Cru Classé
Classic Biodynamic St Emilion Grand Cru Classé with soft plummy aromas, sweet attack and a refined but dense velvety palate. 16 months barrel ageing giving the wine all those hallmark pencil shaving aromas, integrated vanilla spice and soft tannins. 85% Merlot 15% Cabernet Franc grown on a limestone plateau providing an abundance of mineral richness.
The history of the Moueix family started in Bordeaux in 1931 when Alain’s great grandparents bought Fonroque. In 2001 Alain Moueix was appointed to manage his family estate. To breathe some new life into this property of 20 hectares Alain converted the estate over to certified organic and biodynamic vine growing methods. The results have been outstanding and Château Fonroque's limestone soils enable the wines to express themselves and develop more fruit expression and a mineral almost crystalline structure.
