This is rich and round with a juicy, savory palate of crushed berries. Minerals too. Full body, with velvety tannins and a delicious finish.
The 2010 Fontenil displays loads of crushed rock and floral notes intermixed with raspberries, red currants and some darker fruits such as blueberries. It is medium to full-bodied, with relatively soft tannins but good acidity, ripeness and focus.
Bright, full red-ruby. Sexy nose combines raspberry, flowers, menthol and crushed rock accented by licorice and mint. Juicy, spicy and firm, with sound acidity enlivening the flavors of blueberry and licorice. Not at all overdone; in fact, a bit youthfully disjointed today owing to its acidity. Finishes fresh and persistent, with serious, dusty tannins spreading out to coat the incisors.
A great example of Bordeaux value wines at its best. Lots of plush, plum, sweet, ripe, black raspberries, plum, espresso bean, earth and cocoa notes, round tannins and a sweet, chocolately black cherry finish that is already fun to drink.
