Château de Fonbel 2015, St Emilion Grand Cru - fine wine direct

Château de Fonbel 2015, St Emilion Grand Cru - Wine-pages.com, Tom Cannavan 91/100

"Merlot dominates the blend here (85%), along with Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) and Petit Verdot (5%), but have no fear that this will be at all jammy or soft: it's a structured wine of tension and a certain raciness, the sweet and ripe black fruit finely etched with graphite and tobacco, the palate walking a fine line between plump black berries and a sinewy, steely core of tannin and acid very successfully. This has cellaring potential, but is just entering a window of very pleasurable drinkability."
