2016 Chateau Fontenil Pre-Arrival Offer

Fronsac, Bordeaux, FRANCE
$42.99 Bottle
  • Closure: Cork

Other Reviews....
The 2016 Fontenil has a tightly wound bouquet with blackberry and subtle undergrowth aromas that change towards more marine-like, estuarine scents. There is certainly good complexity here. The palate is nicely poised with plenty of dusky black fruit. There is actually a very slight green edge...not under-ripe, perhaps more a leafiness that actually complements this Fronsac and lends freshness. I think this will turn out very fine once in bottle.

Sleek in feel, with racy acidity pulling the raspberry and plum fruit along from the get-go. The chalky minerality is well-embedded on the finish. Solid.-J.M.

Wine Spectator

Very pretty balance to this with a juicy fruit character, bright acidity and a long and flavorful finish. Savory and juicy.

Michel and Dany Rolland's 2016 Fontenil is quite pretty. Bright, crystalline and precise, it offers a compelling interplay of pliant, red-toned fruit and savory notes, all with an extra kick of acid-driven freshness. In 2016, Fontenil is bit more savory and less overtly fruit-driven than in some previous years. Tasted three times.
