Mooie Fronsac van het eigen domein van de beroemde oenoloog-consultant Michel Rolland dat hij samen met zijn echtgenote Dany, eveneens oenoloog, leidt.
The 2016 Fontenil is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and gives up exuberant red cherries, black raspberries, wild blueberries and cinnamon stick scents with hints of wild sage and forest floor. Medium-bodied, refreshing and wonderfully elegant, it has beautiful vibrancy and a perfumed finish.
The 2016 Fontenil has a well-defined bouquet of red currant and cranberry fruit, crushed rose petals and light peppery aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berries, a fine bead of acidity and quite a persistent finish. Certainly one of the more elegant Fontenils that I have tasted. Superb.
Extremely perfumed and bright with raspberry, currant and driedflower character. Full-bodied, yet soft and velvety with a flavorful finish. Already gorgeous. Better from 2022.
