Chateau de Fonbel, Saint Emilion Grand Cru, 2016

The history of Château de Fonbel refers to the Vauthier family. This wonderful vintage, nestled near the medieval town of Saint Emilion is one of three properties managed by Alain and Pauline Vauthier who work every day to produce exceptional wines.

Château de Fonbel spreads over 16 hectares in the Saint-Émilion Grand Cru appellation, on gravelly, clay and sandy soils

Alain Vauthier and his daughter Pauline (Châteaux Ausone and Moulin St.-Georges) have significantly raised the level of this property using the same methods as for Château Ausone. They put all their expertise in this property to achieve a very large Saint Emilion Grand Cru. The average age of the vines in the vineyard is 20 years and the harvest is done manually. The fermentation takes place in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats and the aging takes place in barrels of which 30% are new for 12 months.

Grape Varieties: 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit verdot, 3% carmenere.

” His rich wine has both open, ripe black fruits and the freshness of the vintage. On top, there is an extra layer of color and exuberance. It includes some Petit Verdot, rare in Saint-Émilion. ROGER VOSS – 91 pts Wine Enthusiast ”

Tasting Notes: At first, the bouquet delivers beautiful aromas of blackcurrant, black cherry and raspberry. Then, the palate is harmonious and flamboyant with its beautiful juice and its long finish. Overall, this wine pairs nicely with red meats and certain game.

Food Pairing Suggestions: The chateau pairs deliciously well with some roasted Chicken. It can be a great friend with Creamy Pasta, dishes with Sauces and Seafood.
