Bordeaux stands out as the first AOC (Protected Designation of Origin) vineyard thanks to a wide range of high-quality terroirs. This large choice of fine wines can appeal to all wine-lovers for all occasions. The climate of Bordeaux allows a perfect maturing of the grapes and consequently favours the creation of great wines. B. de Fondabet is a case in point. Really accessible, despite its young age, this wine utterly illustrates the values and the philosophy of Château Fonbadet. It is the combination of an original and unique style with the intensity and complexity of a Bordeaux.
6 months in oak barrels
40% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot
Beautiful ruby-red colour. The nose develops aromas of black fruits (plum, blackcurrant and cherry). Elegant and round in mouth, B de Fondabet expresses structure with mellow tannins. Nice balance.
Ruth says “Cabernet/Merlot blend, 6mths oak. Medium bodied, bramble fruit, spice with a meaty finish.”
