Located in the heart of the Saint-Emilion appellation, the domain of Château de Fonbel is owned by the Vauthier family, also owners of the prestigious Château Ausone. Beautiful (still affordable) Grandcru Saint Emilion. A very good St.-Emilion Grandcru with notes of cedar, roasted herbs, lavender, black cherries and spices. The wine was aged in oak for 20 months. Some southern Rhone-like aromatics can be found in this wine. However, on the palate the wine is a classic Bordeaux, with moderate tannins, medium bodied and good freshness and precision. Drink it for the next 15 years.
