Wine Advocate Parker:
"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."

Checking in as a blend of 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Château Fonroque offers a rich, powerful nose of ripe black fruits and cassis as well as vanilla bean, spice box, and chocolate. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and concentrated, it has plenty of background oak, a great mid-palate, and one heck of a terrific finish. This is the real deal and certainly the finest wine I've tasted from the estate. Give bottles 2-3 years and enjoy over the following decade. It should be a stunning value.
"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."
