Château Fontenil Red Bordeaux Blend Fronsac 2009

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."

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

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
