  • Merlot(85%)  
    It is the most representative grape of Bordeaux, covering 60% of the vineyard. It is found mainly in the Libournais, on the "right bank" of the Garonne, especially in Saint Emilion and Pomerol. This grape is easily exportable thanks to its adaptability to different soils. It matures very quickly on gravelly soils, but it is clay soils of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion that fit it best. There, the fruit is expressed all in delicacy, offering floral notes of violet, peony, and of black and red fruits. Among all Bordeaux varieties, Merlot is the one which offers roundness and smoothness to the wine. Over time, these flavors evolve towards undergrowth aromas, marked by mushrooms, truffles, tobacco and even old leather.
  • Cabernet Franc(15%)  


Chateau Fonroque is part of Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe with its 17.6 hectqres, its limestone soils on the plateau and clay-limestone on the hillside.


The nose is deep, marked by black fruits mixed with floral notes. Some very subtle woody notes complete the nose. The first taste is nice, sweet and deep at the same time, it goes on a juicy structure with body, it is refined with a velvety palate. The finish is very fresh, dense, persistent on a brilliant fruit associated with mineral notes. The fruit is precise, crunchy with a dense structure, the finish is long, it is very well-balanced.
