Robert Parker 87
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Fonroque 2010 is has a relatively lighter and more foursquare bouquet that is peers with redcurrant and wild strawberry combining to form a high-toned with aeration. This appears to exhibit more volatile acidity than its peers. The palate has a slightly shrill entry: sharp acidity and a little hollow. This does not quite have the composure of other Saint Emilion with slight attenuation on the finish. Tasted January 2014.
