Fontenil 2011

Member Review by zufrieden:

The 2010 Fontenil is an elegant wine with a nose of blackberry confit or jam; the entry is soft, with pencil lead (graphite),soft tannin, and brambleberry dominant. There are woody notes on the finish not entirely sourced to oak conditioning, so we stop short at 89. Ready to roll.

A chalky spine is buried nicely in the core of cherry, currant and plum fruit. Nice singed tobacco leaf leaves a mouthwatering feel on the finish. Solid.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Fontenil 750ml

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

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. -JM Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Fontenil 750ml
