Tasting Notes:
rated: August 20, 2007 , Robert Parker
88 points "Fonteni'sl 1999 is once again one of the stars of the appellation. It reveals a deep ruby/purple color along with a sweet perfume of raspberries, black currants, licorice, and subtle smoke. The wine is medium-bodied, with attractive ripe fruit in the attack, mid-palate, and finish, and melted tannin. It will drink well for a decade." Best 2002-2012
