Château de Fonbel Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

We are somewhat surprised and 100% delighted at Monsieur Alain Vauthier's (TheOwner of St Emilions greatest wine, Ch. Ausone) decision to release thisbrilliant Chateau En Primeur. When we tasted this, it was followed next byChapelle de Ausone and then Ausone itself. Fonbel held its own like David toGoliath. It was brilliant and at this price a total bargain. Rich sweet, ripeblackberry fruit. Dense with soft tannins and glorious St Emilion soft appealand Ausone majesty. Drink from arrival in 2008 to 2015
