As Château Fonplégade's precocious younger sibling, Fleur de Fonplégade offers a vibrant expression of our vineyard, highlighting lush, generous fruit, velvety tannins and elegant length. In the vineyard, we focus on somewhat more youthful plantings grown in sandy soils to create a fresh and enticing wine that spotlights pure and lovely varietal flavors. To preserve this appealing fruit, Fleur de Fonplégade is cold macerated, and is aged for approximately 15 months.
From the younger plants of the Château Fonplégade, fresh and pleasant wines are produced, focusing on the fruit flavors, which are highlighted by the technique of cold maceration. Forest fruits fit a light smoked in a tasty wine.
