Tasting Notes:
rated: March 1, 2004 , Wine Spectator
"Good core of fruit for the vintage, with medium silky tannins and a good shot of new oak on the finish. Best after 2005." Best 2005-
rated: June 1, 2004 , Robert Parker
91 points "It may be the finest Fontenil to date, and a credit to the brilliant winemaking/proprietor team of Dany and Michel Rolland. A sleeper of the vintage as well as a good value, it boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with a big, sweet nose of creosote, black currant liqueur, melted licorice, and a hint of minerals. Medium bodied, with layers of fruit, a beautiful texture, and an opulent finish, this heady Fronsac can be drunk over the next 10-12 years. Bravo!" Best 2005-2015
