A long and exciting finish to this with blackberries blueberries and minerals. Full body. Beautiful polish to the tannins.

The Fontenil has a very attractive very pure bouquet with wonderful definition and lift. The palate is tannic on the entry with a slight saline note very good structure and great focus on the finish.

The palate is tannic on the entry with a slight saline note very good structure and great focus on the finish. This is a Fontenil built for long-term ageing and it is a Fronsac that is well worth investing in.

The 2010 Fontenil offers abundant black raspberry licorice incense and crushed rock characteristics medium to full-bodied flavors excellent purity and a moderately tannic lusty heady finish. It should drink well for a decade or more.
