"Well-placed, ripe red fruits and careful extraction provide lots of fruit-forward pleasure" Jane Anson

Tasting note information
Michel Rolland is a legend in the wine world. As a consultant, he regularly works with world famous châteaux like Angélus, Ausone and Giscours, the wines of which will set you back a pretty penny. Back in 1986, Michel and wife Dany bought Château Fontenil in sleepy Fronsac on the Right Bank of the Gironde. They planned to have it just as their home, but couldn’t resist and, over 13 years, renovated the estate from the roots up. It’s a top spot (highest in Fronsac) in the heart of Merlot country, where a slightly cooler climate plus clay and limestone soils produce wines with depth and freshness. The vines are around 45 years old, so flavour is intense. This superb 2016 will reward further ageing. Decant and serve with fine red meat dishes.
