Right out of the bottle it was a comfortable blended tasty wine with no hint of alcohol. Moderate body yet still gentle. Well liked by a variety of palettes at our party with finger food. It went well with raclette even.

Smooth with a bit of acidity( excellent for pasta and meats), juicy but not sweet. Only a hint of old world barn yard. Very pleasing,accommodating wine that most will like WITH food. But it should be that way, yes?

last night of 2 days of Thanksgiving feasting this wine separated itself from the rest. Less fruit, mild pepper and still young. It was almost a digestive to all the wines we had consumed the past 2 days. It seemed to compliment our desert let alone the left overs. amazing

2011 Château de Fonbel

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend more

9/24/2015 - Chapel Likes this wine: 91 points

This we tasted in Paris at Au Bon Accueil restaurant . Immediately upon opening it was smooth with full body, fruit at the onset and leveled out and no strong tannins. Paired excellent with the lamb! Cost was €58 and we wanted another.
I see on CT the community cost is under $16. If you can get this wine under $30, it's a steal!!!! I wound buy a case or three at that price

St. Helena more

8/23/2015 - Chapel wrote: 93 points

Balanced big wine with firm berry tones but not overtly sweet. Tannins were mild to moderate even though not a strong oak flavor noted. for those likely a more fruit forward wine, you would have rated this a 94-95.

light wine with all the fruit and what ever body it has when you first taste it. The, it turns to a watery liquid. Suggest to START with this wine and not further down the progression of wines. Probably even before a Pinot Noir

What a wonderful surprise. right out of the bottle this bold, deep wine was smooth! The firm but subtle licorice flavor was the type of sweetness only a master chef could have designed. Drank it as a stand alone and spent all afternoon lounging in it. 20 or so minutes after uncorking it there was yet a higher gear of smoothness.

Uncorked an hour and it was still wound up and acidic. Decanted and improved. Very good stand alone but with a fine ribeye it did not compliment well. Still young?
