Ch Fonbadet 2020
€ 33.21/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
Vinous – 90-92/100
The 2020 Fonbadet has a fresh, vibrant bouquet of blackberry, cedar and light minty aromas, all quite gentle, and a light seaweed scent that emerges with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, a little oaky on the entry but that will be integrated with time. Touches of dark chocolate and vanilla appear toward the finish. This is a fine Fonbadet, but they need to watch that level of new oak to check it does not impede the fruit once in bottle.
The Wine Advocate – 88-90/100
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2020 Fonbadet opens with fragrant notes of kirsch, black raspberries and red roses, plus suggestions of tobacco leaf, graphite and redcurrant jelly, plus a hint of bay leaves. The medium-bodied palate is elegant and refreshing, offering a solid backbone of firm, chewy tannins, finishing savory.
