    Rated 90/100 by N. MARTIN «I suggested/hoped that the 2020 Fonroque would display more finesse by the time of bottling, and it seems to have heard my words. With blackberry, briary and light sous-bois scents on the nose, this indeed conveys greater refinement. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly angular tannins, fresh and saline, with a dash of black pepper decorating the finish. A little Medocian in style with decent length, this should age well in bottle.» (December 2022)

    Le millésime 2020 est noté 93/100 par La Revue du Vin de France : « Couleur sombre et densité caractérisent ce 2020.  [...] Un Saint-Emilion à la carrure impressionnante. »

    Rated 95/100 by La Revue du Vin de France «Certifié en biodynamie, Fonroque livre un vin qui ne force jamais sa nature et respecte les équilibres. Il possède un fruit et une chair veloutée qui continuent à s'épanouir dans le temps. Jeune, 2018 se montre d'une grande fraîcheur aux accents minéraux. Mais c'est avec l'âge qu'il s'exprime au mieux l'empreinte de son terroir. Les millésimes chauds sont remarquables.» (December 2022)
