Fonroque is one of the great estates in Saint-Emilion and yet it remains one of the truly remarkable values in the region. We love the fact that this property was, in 2002, one of the first in Bordeaux to experiment with biodynamics and organic farming (now Biodyvin certified from Ecocerts). It has been 100% biodynamic since 2008. The vines are Merlot and Cabernet Franc and are maintained at about 30 years of age. Only 5,000 cases of the Grand Vin are produced each year.

Fonroque

Run by the passionate and hugely talented Alain Moueix, Fonroque was among Bordeaux's pioneers of biodynamics, going 100% biodynamic in 2008. Since the shift to Biodynamics the estate's wines have taken off with some of their best vintages ever coming in the last few years. A brilliant Saint-Emilion firmly ranking among the region's best, this is a wine to buy now before the price for great vintages starts soaring.
