from 2003, a good, not great Bordeaux year, and you will lap up a bold, sweet, plummy, spicy, oak-influenced claret, whose ripe, young, crunchy fruit will go down well with Christmas food and win it many festive fans

Strong creme de cassis on the nose. Also, raspberry, wet stones and flowers. Medium to full bodied on the palate. Flavors match the aromas. Creamy red and black berry and currants. Rich and decadent. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 9/4/10

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

The basic Fontenil (95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) has a deep bluish purple color and relatively hefty alcohol at 14.5%, but it is not noticeable in this full-bodied, layered, opulent wine, with lots of black raspberry fruit intermixed with some blueberries and crushed rock. Both of these wines have a good 10–15 years of potential in a fine cellar.

This has ample flesh, with a mouthfilling feel to the linzer torte, blackberry confiture and spice notes, all backed by sweet tobacco and fresh acidity on the finish. Very solid. Drink now through 2019.
