The basic Fontenil (95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) has a deep bluish purple color and relatively hefty alcohol at 14.5%, but it is not noticeable in this full-bodied, layered, opulent wine, with lots of black raspberry fruit intermixed with some blueberries and crushed rock. Both of these wines have a good 10-15 years of potential in a fine cellar. ||Two of the best wines from Dany and Michel Rolland are these vintages of Fontenil in Fronsac.

Attractive blackberry and mineral aromas and flavors, follow though to a full body, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Try in 2016. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Very deep and fleshy but then lovely freshness. Moueix must be kicking himself for getting out of Fronsac!
