"A long and exciting finish to this, with blackberries, blueberries and minerals. Full body. Beautiful polish to the tannins.
Barrel Sample: 92-93 Points
"Dark ruby-red. Musky aromas of redcurrant, strawberry, mocha and white pepper. Then silky and suave in the mouth, offering an excellent balance of sweet strawberry and more herbal-peppery flavors. Finishes long and smooth, with a peppery nuance and a very intense strawberry presence. The best Fontenil I can recall at a similarly young stage of development. Unfortunately, I was unable to taste the estate's luxuy cuvee Le Defi, as it had not yet finished its malolactic fermentation.
Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"
International Wine Cellar
"Fresh and racy, with a very direct beam of black cherry and red currant fruit, gently laced with tobacco and sage hints that glide through the inviting finish. Not as grippy as the best, but shows lovely purity and balance, with deceptive length. Best from 2015 through 2023."
"The 2010 Fontenil displays loads of crushed rock and floral notes intermixed with raspberries, red currants and some darker fruits such as blueberries. It is medium to full-bodied, with relatively soft tannins but good acidity, ripeness and focus."
The Wine Advocate
"Perfumed, light, hinting at minerality, the wine has a smooth veneer over the dusty tannins. The final effect is rich and polished.
