  • Chateau Fontenil 2010


    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. Read More

  • Château Fontenil Red Bordeaux Blend Fronsac 2009


    This is the first taste for me of the 2009 Fontenil (it has been lying patiently in the cellar for about 3 years). This is a deep, Merlot-red wine with a fragrance of fine Kirsch and wet sphagnum. There is white pepper (light) with bright cherry (possibly ripe cranberry sans acidity) and racy tannin on the finish. A very fine Fronsac. 91 points. Read More
