VINOUS (ANTONIO GALLONI) : 87-90 / 100

The 2017 Fonroque offers good depth, but it is also a bit rustic and rough around the edges. Black cherry, chocolate, new oak, espresso, new leather and licorice add to an impression of darkness in this potent, brooding Saint Émilion.

THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER (JEFF LEVE) : 87-89 / 100

This medium-bodied wine starts out with sweet, ripe, red berries. Forward in style, the wine offers fruit on the palate but regrettably finishes short.

VINOUS (NEAL MARTIN) : 90-92 / 100

The 2017 Fonroque has a perfumed bouquet with redcurrant and crushed strawberry fruit, a touch of vanilla and a faint touch of cedar and dark chocolate. It opens nicely with aeration but never gets carried away (as Alain Moueix’s wines tend not to!) The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity, fresh and tender in the mouth with quite a long, silky finish. Delightful!

WINE ADVOCATE (LISA PERROTTI-BROWN) : 87-89 / 100

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Fonroque offers up beautiful red and black currant preserves notes with notions of spice cake and potpourri. Medium-bodied with a firm, chewy frame and a breeze of freshness, it finishes on a peppery note.

DECANTER.COM (JANE ANSON) : 89 / 100

This biodynamically certified estate is under new ownership, but Alain Moueix remains as director. The fresh, floral red fruits don't feel overly ripe, and yet it seems to work because they have bounce and definition - even if there is a tiny dip through the mid-palate. It's attractive and well-handled, with just 30% new oak and 70% one year or older. 42% of the crop was touched by frost, which has affected the usual blend slightly.

Drinking Window 2024 - 2036

JEAN-MARC QUARIN (JEAN-MARC QUARIN) : 15,75 / 20

WINE ENTHUSIAST (ROGER VOSS) : 92-94 / 100

This biodynamic estate has produced a rich, dense and generous wine, with solid yet fine tannins and powerful, pure black-fruit flavors. Drink from 2024.

JAMESSUCKLING.COM (JAMES SUCKLING) : 90-91 / 100

Tight and fruity with chocolate and dark-berry character. Medium-to full-bodied and layered. Very pretty. Better than 2016.

WINE SPECTATOR (JAMES MOLESWORTH) : 89-92 / 100

Subtle, with alluring tobacco and charcoal hints amid the core of gently steeped plum and black currant fruit. Reveals a light mineral hint on the finish. Shows a pretty tug of earth throughout.—J.M.
