CHATEAU FONPLEGADE 2019 1.5L Magnum
The Château Fonplégade 2019 has an intense ruby color with bold purplish tints. The nose reveals floral hints, blackberry and cherry aromatic scents, lightly spiced by the subtle presence of fresh citrus. The attack is powerful on the palate with a fresh and silky mouthfeel and generous tannins are supported by a light and graceful mineral finish.
