2012 Fonbel 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 87-89 points
Drink by: 2013 - 2023
A sleeper of the vintage, the dark ruby/purple-colored 2012 Fonbel offers up sweet aromas of mulberries, raspberries, forest floor and loamy soil. Medium-bodied with abundant fruit, glycerin and length, it should drink well for a decade.
"Château Fonbel has a long, ancient history that dates all the way back to the times when the ancient Romans were active in St. Emilion cultivating grapes for wine.
In 1971, Alain Vauthier purchased Château Fonbel. The Vauthier family are of course better known for owning the famous estate, Château Ausone as well as Château Moulin St. Georges in Saint-Emilion.
The vineyard is located at the bottom of a slope on almost flat land, not too far from Château Ausone, Château Moulin St. Georges or the picturesque village of Saint-Emilion."
