Other Reviews....
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Fonroque (82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc) gives up notions of preserved plums, baked blackberries and dried herbs with hints of raspberry pie, underbrush and black tea. Full-bodied and laden with black fruit, it has loads of red fruit brightness in the mouth with soft, rounded tannins and a refreshing finish.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Advocate

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.

James Molesworth - Wine Spectator

Pretty density and finesse to this wine with blackberry and blueberry character to the fresh and bright structure of polished tannins and crisp acidity.

James Suckling

The 2018 Château Fonroque checks in as a blend of 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc. Revealing a deep purple color as well as beautiful notes of cassis, crushed flowers, and spice, it's medium to full-bodied, has subtle background oak, sweet tannins, and a great finish. This brilliant Saint-Émilion will drink well for 15-20 years. Tasted twice.
