Attractive blackberry and mineral aromas and flavors, follow though to a full body, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Try in 2016. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Fontenil 750ml

The 2009 Fontenil (95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) displays a deep opaque purple color as well as notes of black raspberries, spring flowers, blueberries, and a hint of blackberries. Rich and full-bodied with admirable definition and precision,... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Fontenil 750ml

Shows lots of blueberry, with a minerally undertone. Full-bodied, with superintegrated tannins and a long, long finish. Juicy and gorgeous, with a serious backbone of tannins. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Fontenil 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

Robert Parker says, "The 2009 Fontenil (95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) displays a deep opaque purple color as well as notes of black raspberries, spring flowers, blueberries, and a hint of blackberries. Rich and full-bodied with admirable definition and precision, sweet tannin, and a long finish of over 35 seconds, it is a super effort as well as a big time sleeper of the vintage in 2009. Enjoy it over the next 10-15 years. These appear to be the finest wines the brilliant oenologists Dany and Michel Rolland have produced at Fontenil, their home estate."
