Le Defi de Fontenil 2018 – Fronsac

The nose is elegant and offers richness (full of elegance), power, tension as well as a small aerial/very well-balanced side. It reveals notes of creamy cassis, fleshy Boysen berry, small notes of violet, lily associated with touches of fleshy/crushed blueberry, hints of graphite, tonka bean, cuben pepper, a subtle hint of fig, a fine hint of grilled/expresso and an imperceptible hint of crushed cardamom. The palate is juicy, fresh and offers gourmandize, a fine acidulous frame, a beautiful definition, richness (full of balance), a certain density, structure and a certain power. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy cassis, crushed blackberry, small notes of fleshy raspberry associated with touches of violet, creamy violet plum as well as fine hints of flowers, caramelization, mild tobacco, a very discreet hint of timut pepper and an imperceptible hint of orange. Good length. Tannins are elegant, racy and structuring. A beautiful wine! A beautiful/good persistence on notes of toasted hazelnut, dark chocolate and tonka bean. A beautiful wine on the fruit, power and perfectly balance.
