Description

This is one of our favourite vineyards – and their name (Fonplegade literally meaning “fountain of plenty”) was derived from the historic 13th century stone fountain that graces the estate’s vineyard.

The vines have  continued to thrive at this exceptional estate, that sits on limestone that is typical of Saint-Emilion’s finest vineyards. Denise and Stephen Adams acquired Château Fonplégade in 2004 and have since spent time and money revitalizing the vineyards, renovating the cellar and lovingly restoring the château. This place is certainly worth a visit if you get the chance.

The wine is excellent, with a deep ruby colour, and a generous fresh, red fruits and spice nose. Fleur de Fonplégade has a full-bodied, round mouthfeel with an elegant acidity (from the limestone terroir). A really super wine at this price point.
