Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

93-94 JS / 92-94 WA / 90 DE

A reserved, focused Fontenil with blackberry, dark-walnut, dark-chocolate and mushroom character. The tannins are tight and poised, lending serious tension and framework to the wine. Serious. - James Suckling

Opaque purple-black in color, the 2020 Fontenil needs a little swirling and coaxing to release opulent scents of plum preserves, blueberry compote and chocolate-covered cherries, plus suggestions of candied violets, ground cloves and fertile loam. The full-bodied palate is rich with generous black and blue preserves layers, supported by beautifully plush tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing long and fragrant. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

The oak toasting is a little intrusive on the opening but this opens to show raspberry, blueberry and richly textured liquorice root and cocoa bean notes. Sour cherry on the finish gives a welcome kick of acidity. A yield of 40hl/ha. 30% new oak, 30% kept in stainless steel. Tasted twice. - Jane Anson, Decanter
