I loved the 2019 Château Fontenil, a ripe, sexy wine that stays balanced, pure and elegant. Giving up a dense ruby/purple color, rocking cassis fruit, lots of tobacco and spice aromatics, and sweet tannins, it's going to drink nicely right out of the gate yet also keep for 15 years or more. - Jeb Dunnuck

Mineral and graphite to the purple fruit. Some lavender, too. Medium to full body and firm tannins. A harmonious and balanced Fontenil. - James Suckling

The 2019 Fontenil has a plush, luxuriant bouquet with kirsch, raspberry coulis and orange blossom aromas that seems to envelop the olfactory senses. The palate is quite punchy on the entry with a slight metallic note that wears off after a while. There is a touch of bitterness that just detracts on the finish. Otherwise, this is a fine Fronsac. - Neal Martin

This is a successful wine, striking a good balance between austerity and fruit. 100% Merlot and has a soft roundness through the finish that speaks to fleshy fruit, backed up by liquorice and black chocolate. Lots to enjoy, easy to recommend. Tasted twice, three weeks apart. Drinking Window 2024 - 2036 - Jane Anson, Decanter
