The 2020 Château de Fonbel was picked 14-20 September for the Merlot and on 28 September for the Cabernet Franc (there is even 7% Carmenère picked on 1 October), matured in 30% new oak. It has a vivid black cherry and wild strawberry bouquet laced with iris petal. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy black fruit, fresh, a little tight at the moment with quite a structured, marine-tinged finish.
65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 7% Carmenere.
