Château Fontenil 2014 – Fronsac

Château Fontenil 2014 – Fronsac

The nose offers a fine concentration. It reveals notes of wood, sweet spices and cassis associated with a touch of blackberry, raspberry, fresh red berries and subtle touches of chocolate and sweet spices / cardamom. This wine need to be put in carafe. After aeration there is an imperceptible hint of pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a fine minerality, a nice juiciness, an acid frame, fat and a fine suavity. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, juicy strawberry and touches of toasted oak associated with subtle touches of flowers, cassis as well as touches of chocolate / sweet spices on the finish. Tannins are fine and very slightly dry. Good length and good persistence.
