Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker, Jancis Robinson, and Suckling

A blend of 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Fonroque has a deep garnet-purple color and rambunctious scents of baked black plums, boysenberry preserves and fruitcake with hints of Indian spices, potpourri, cedar and sandalwood. The medium to full-bodied palate has soft, well-managed tannins and plenty of freshness to support the black fruit preserves and spicy flavors, finishing earthy.

— Lisa Perrotti-Brown (22/04/2021)Robert Parker Wine Advocate Vintage 2018 - 90 PARKER

Lustrous dark blackish crimson. Rich spread of aromas that constitute an intriguing cocktail of fruit, dried fruits and tar followed by real energy on the palate. Some velvety quality. Ideally wait until the light oaky imprint before drinking. Clean, rather refreshing finish.

— Jancis Robinson (12/02/2021) Vintage 2018 - 16.5+ JANCIS ROBINSON

Stewed berries, currants, cloves, sweet tobacco and some orange zest on the nose. It’s full-bodied with firm, tightly knit tannins, framing a core of ripe dark fruit. Spiced and zesty finish. Fills your mouth. Try from 2024.

The winery

Château Fonroque

Château Fonroque

Château Fonroque figures among the few biodynamic producers in the Bordeaux region. Its owner, Alain Moueix, is convinced that only by making a firm and total commitment to Nature will an honest expression of the vineyard ensue and more well-balanced and authentic wines obtained, wines with greater smoothness and harmony, and a most pleasant palate.
