Respecting the environment as well as the grapes that are so carefully cultivated, the wine is vinified and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. The result is a wine of elegant finesse and freshness. Grapes are grown on the estate of well-known Dany and Michel Rolland.

The 2018 Château Fontenil is a beautiful wine that readers will be happy to have in their cellar. Coming from the home estate of Michel and Danny Rolland in Fronsac, it offers a saturated ruby/purple hue as well as terrific Pomerol-like aromas and flavors of cassis, damp earth, violets, and cedary spice. Flawlessly balanced, medium-bodied, with background oak as well as chalky minerality, it's already hard to resist yet has another 10-15 years of prime drinking ahead of it. It's a hidden gem in the vintage.

Solid, with raspberry and plum compote notes, allied to a good chalky spine. Reveals a nice tobacco hint on the finish.
