Solid wine for the vintage with dark fruits and sweet tobacco. Full body, with silky tannins and a balanced finish. Rating: 90-91 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (May 2012)

A bold, modern style, with overt spice aromatics and mouthfilling blueberry compote, plum sauce and fig paste flavors. Dark anise and graphite fill in on the finish. Not shy, but pulls it off. Rating: 89-92 James Molesworth, The Wine Spectator (May 2012)
Since this estate was acquired by the Adams family of America, who hired consulting oenologist Michel Rolland, the quality has soared. The 2011 Fonplegade is another tour de force. It boasts an inky/blue/purple color in addition to copious notes of charcoal, camphor, blackberries, blueberries and spring flowers. Opulent, fleshy, deep and impressively built, it will be drinkable in 3-4 years or can be cellared for two decades or more. Kudos to Fonplegade!
