Château Fontenil 2016 Fronsac France
The improbable vintage!
A superb year in all respects with a near-perfect weather pattern.
The harvest took place in great conditions, producing beautiful grapes from north to south.
Undoubtedly the most accomplished vintage since 2009 and 2010.
Behind its dark crimson colour lie exuberant aromas of oak, red fruit, black cherry, raspberry and mocha. Opulent and powerful on the palate with tannin that is noticeable, but not firm.
Sure to be a sensation if you like a memorable wine, served with game.
Otherwise, equally delightful over the next 20 years.
