Château Fontenil 2012 – Fronsac

Château Fontenil 2012 – Fronsac

The nose is fruity, fresh, elegant and offers concentration. It reveals notes of boysenberry and small berries associated with fine notes of flowers, plum jam, a discreet hint of crushed strawberry as well as a fine touch of oak and graphite. The palate is fruity, racy, aerial, elegant and offers a nice fat, minerality as well as a nice and silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, plum and a hint of cassis associated with fine notes of cherry, raspberry, fine notes of toasted oak as well as a discreet hint of caramelization, saline minerality and a hint of tea. Tannins are fine, elegant and structuring. Good length and persistence.
