Château Fontenil Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

$27.95

...the 2005 Fontenil has an opaque, thick ruby/purple color. Dense plum, black cherry, blackberry and cassis fruit jump from the glass of this full-bodied, terrific Fronsac, which is one of the appellation's stars of the vintage. Long, rich, young, and capable of lasting another 15-20 years, this is one of the candidates for Wine of the Vintage in Fronsac... Robert Parker

Lean and drying, but with good acidity and structure. Animal notes emerge on day 2.

Tart, plush blueberries, chocolate and med + acid. Slight earth, but certainly earth driven. Some oak appreciated on the nose. Opened up over hours.

Classy- over ripe red fruit that's falling over the hill.

Lovely Fronsac seemingly at its peak. Nice balance and persistence. 30 dollars from Garagiste. Good value.
