This is a big structured wine with a solid core of tannins that backs up the fruit. There is plenty of underlying material to allow the Fontenys to age gracefully for a number of years. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

Wild gamey nose offers redcurrant rose petal and hints of leather and game. Silky and sweet but with nice acid definition serving to highlight the elegant fresh flavors of dark fruits leather and game. Lovely high-pitched flavors of spicy high notes and flowers carry through to the supple finish. A bit like a smaller-scaled Charmes-Chambertin. Incidentally Chrisitian Serafin is convinced that later racking preserved the freshness of his '09s.

Here the nose is not quite as ripe though it is airier and more refined with a pretty mix of very fresh red berry fruit that is cut with hints of earth and humus that continue onto the precise and pure flavors that possess a firm minerality that continues onto the energetic balanced and impressively long finish. As is typically the case this is an elegant Gevrey 1er that isn't quite as complex as the Corbeaux but is every bit as long. A choice. Outstanding.
