"The 2016 Fonroque, part of the portfolio of Alain Moueix, put in a killer performance this year. It has a lighter bouquet compared to its peers with dusky black fruit, quite tertiary and introverted at first, although it does gain more expression and vigor with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin on the entry, very refined and poised without compensating in terms of fruit. I adore the finish here, really sleek and stylish with very fine mineralité and classicism. Bravo Alain Moueix!" -Neal Martin, Apr 2017

"Barrel Sample. This wine is superripe and generous in fruit. The contrast is with the dry core of tannins. Juicy blackberry fruits are rich and opulent, cut by acidity and supported by the tannins." -Roger Voss, Web 2017

"This has grip and focus, with a prominent chalky edge harnessing the core of cassis and black cherry preserve flavors. Pretty spice accents through the finish. Restrained style, and solidly done." -James Molesworth, Web 2017
