Average Score 89.88

A solid red for the vintage with dark berries, dark chocolate and some crushed-stone character. Medium body, a pretty core of fruit and a clean finish.
The 2017 Fontenil is well defined, and quite focused compared to the previous two vintages. It has a rather conservative bouquet that nevertheless has fine intensity with attractive black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, just a nagging green vein towards the second half that just discombobulates the finish and lingers unwanted on the aftertaste. That may dissipate during the élevage – we will see.
The 2017 Fontenil is deep garnet-purple in color and sports warm blackberries, cassis and plums notes with an earthy background and a waft of baking spices. Medium-bodied with soft tannins and refreshing acidity, it has plenty of juicy fruit and good length. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com
Black as the ace of spades. Black and dense but not lacking freshness. Dark with some oaky char and the tannins are fine. Perhaps a little bit too strongly built for the depth of fruit? (JH)
