Dark-berry and oyster-shell aromas follow through to a medium body, integrated tannins and a tangy finish. An almost burnt lemon undertone. Linear and polished. Very solid. Drink in 2019.
The Château Fonplégade 2014 has a surprisingly light and reserved bouquet: pretty and floral but requiring a couple of minutes to get into its stride. The palate is medium-bodied with good backbone, a little edginess coming through with aeration, although it remains stubborn and linear on the finish. It just needs barrel aging to knit the component parts together. Presuming that it does, then it will be a fine Saint Emilion. (NM)
This has a succulent core of steeped plum and blackberry notes inlaid with ganache and licorice snap accents, all of which knit well through the finish, where a light chalk hint echoes, adding effective contrast. Offers a lingering mouthwatering feeling. This could be sneakily long in the cellar. Drink now through 2020. (JM)
Barrel Sample. This is a juicy wine that has attractive fruitiness as well as a dry structure. The palate oscillates between fruit and tannin without one dominating the other. (RV)
