    93-96 WS / 92-95 JD / 92-93 JS / 92 DE / 91-93 WA 

    Offers a very focused and racy beam of raspberry and blackberry coulis flavors, liberally infused with anise and sweet tobacco notes. Shows excellent energy through the finish. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

    The 2018 Château Fonroque checks in as a blend of 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc. Revealing a deep purple color as well as beautiful notes of cassis, crushed flowers, and spice, it's medium to full-bodied, has subtle background oak, sweet tannins, and a great finish. This brilliant Saint-Émilion will drink well for 15-20 years. Tasted twice. - Jeb Dunnuck 

    Pretty density and finesse to this wine with blackberry and blueberry character to the fresh and bright structure of polished tannins and crisp acidity. - James Suckling

    One of the more aromatic wines St-Emilions in 2018, this is rippling with dark boysenberry and bilberry fruits, in a tighter register than usual. They have done a great job here, although I assume it's from small yields as it feels concentrated. The tannins are finely-wrought, and have plenty of juice. This should age very well. Alain Moueix is still the head of winemaking, even though there are now new owners, and it remains biodynamic despite the challenges of 2018. - Jane Anson, Decanter

    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Fonroque (82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc) gives up notions of preserved plums, baked blackberries and dried herbs with hints of raspberry pie, underbrush and black tea. Full-bodied and laden with black fruit, it has loads of red fruit brightness in the mouth with soft, rounded tannins and a refreshing finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
