Château de Fontenille, Bordeaux Rouge

France, Bordeaux

Vines have been grown at Fontenille since the 13th century. This wine has a youthful ruby colour. Produced in an approachable modern style, this is an elegant wine with lingering berry fruit notes. Well-structured, full bodied with characteristic smoky, cigar-box notes so typical of good red Bordeaux.”

The gravel, clay and free-draining soils of the Fontenille vineyards combined with the high winds that keep the grapes healthy, contribute to some of the purest wines that Bordeaux can produce. The vineyards are situated at an altitude of 110 metres above sea level in the Entre-Deux-Mers region between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers.

80% Merlot , 20% Cabernet Sauvignon

Alcohol Percentage

Producer

Vines have been grown at Fontenille since the 13th century and a pilgrimage route, protected by UNESCO, runs through the vineyards to the neighbouring Abbaye de la Sauve Majeure, whose monks tended the vines for hundreds of years. Stéphane Defraine bought the property in 1989 and has gradually renovated the buildings and replanted and extended the vineyards. He now owns 42 hectares, of which 12 hectares are white wine varieties and 30 are red. The wines represent excellent value, with considerably more weight, interest and purity of fruit than other examples at this price.
