Château Fontenil 2022 – Fronsac

The nose is elegant, racy and offers power, concentration and a nice balance throughout. We find notes of pulpy blackberry, toasted and slight notes of fleshy/pulpy strawberry associated with touches of crushed small fruits as well as hints of spices (nutmeg, etc.), pepper, fine hints of violet, sense of place (terroir / local biotope) as well as a discreet hint of bergamot / a side of delicate infusion and tonka bean. The palate is mineral, fruity, nicely balanced and offers freshness, juiciness, roundness, suppleness, deliciousness, a lovely harmony as well as a lovely delicate and powerful touch of the material. On the palate this wine expresses notes of pulpy/fleshy blackberry, fleshy blackcurrant and more lightly small crushed red fruits associated with a touch of small roasted fruits – fresh, fresh flowers, with hints of racy minerality (beauty of limestone, of the terroir) as well as hints of tonka bean, grilled/torrefaction and cocoa. The tannins are precise, relatively powerful and soft.
