Very floral and fruity with violets and rose petals. So aromatic. Medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and a linear finish. Hints of chalk and salt. The blend makes it so cool.

The blend makes it so cool. This is mostly merlot with cabernet sauvignon, carmenere and petit verdot. Pretty now but even better in 2020.

There are fine ripe tannins here that go with the smoky fruitiness. The wine is lightly structured—enough to allow it to age. At the same time with its fine fruits, it is rich and open. Drink the wine from 2021.

Dark red cherry, plum, tobacco and spice notes flesh out in the 2014 de Fonbel. Pliant, supple and inviting, the wine needs another 6-12 months in bottle to fully come together.

Pliant, supple and inviting, the wine needs another 6-12 months in bottle to fully come together. Even so, it is quite tasty today, with lovely juiciness to its dark red and purplish-toned fruit and good aromatic freshness. The blend is 80 % Merlot, 10 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 5 % Carmenère and 5 % Petit Verdot.
