Other Reviews....
The 2022 Fonbadet is a soft, easygoing Pauillac that should drink well right out of the gate. Succulent dark plum fruit, spice, leather and a kiss of French oak are pushed forward. The 2022 is attractive but not exactly complex. Drink 2027-2037.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

Very Pauillac with blackcurrant, blue berry, crushed stone and lavender character. Medium body. Fine tannins. Shows finesse with subtle character.

James Suckling

A consistent Pauillac, the 2022 Château Fonbadet has textbook notes of both red and black currants as well as freshly sharpened pencils, tobacco, and some subtle earthy nuances. It's balanced, medium to full-bodied, has ripe, supple tannins, and a great finish. You certainly wouldn't know it comes from an extremely hot, dry vintage by tasting it. There's enough structure here to warrant 4-6 years of bottle age, but it's an outstanding wine in the making.

Blackberries, black currants, cigar wrapper, mint, tobacco leaf, cocoa, flowers and espresso beans create the aromatic profile. The wine is even better on the richly-textured palate, with its layers of black cherries blackberries, currants and chewy tannins. The finish wraps everything up with a salty accent to the lingering, dark red fruits, espresso, spice, and hint of cocoa on the backend. The wine blends 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 13.5% ABV. Drink from 2026-2048.
