(93 - 95)Deep purple-black in color, the 2018 Fontenil struts out of the glass with confident black plum preserves, black cherries and mulberries scents plus suggestions of underbrush, Indian spices, violets and mossy bark. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited, it has a solid, plush frame and loads of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.- LPB

(93-94) This is so tight and polished with a degree of depth and beauty I have not seen for a while. Medium body and beautiful, silky tannins that buttress the lovely, focused fruit.

(91-93) From the home estate of Michel and Danny Rolland, the 2018 Château Fontenil reveals a deep, saturated purple color as well as a great perfume of blue fruits, wild flowers, spicy oak, and hints of potpourri. Ripe, sexy, yet with good freshness and purity, it's a classic 2018 that's going to drink well in its youth but also evolve beautifully for 7-8 years or more.

Sweet floral notes add brightness to a core of red berry and blood orange fruit. There is plenty of depth and overall texture, but at the same time the 2018 has a good bit of brightness as well. The 2018 is a gorgeous Fontenil. Tasted two times.- AG
