Fonplégade

Grand Cru Classé

Owner: Stephen et Denise Adams

Manager: Marjolaine Maurice de Coninck

Oenologist: Michel Rolland

Château Fonplégade, Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé, is a 44-acre property. It is located on the south-side of the famous plateau of Saint Emilion, near the Châteaux Ausone, Bel Air, Canon and Magdelaine. Looking at the Roman pathways still visible today, Fonplégade could be one of the oldest vineyards of Saint-Emilion. Fonplégade means ‘full fountain’ or ‘bent fountain’. The meaning comes from its clay soil, which supports the formation of springs on the upper side of the property. At first, the property was divided into several plots owned by several landlords. In 1852, Jean-Pierre Beylot purchased the property and built the actual mansion house and its surroundings buildings. A few purchases, inheritances and years later, the property became the way it is now: 44 acres all in one block. In 1863, Château Fonplégade was sold to the Duke of Morny, step brother of Napoleon the 3rd, and to his sister the Countess of Galard. It was successively taken over by a bank, then by Armand Moueix in 1953 until Denise and Stephen Adams bought it in 2004. Their main goal now is to be part of the best in Saint-Emilion. Their plan since 2004 has been simple but ambitious: to renovate the vineyards and to go back to friendlier methods towards the environment and the vineyard itself. The year 2009 is the start of the biodynamic production at Fonplegade. Second wine: Fleur de Fonplegade.
