This wine has a deep colour with garnet tints. On the nose it offers red fruit aromas, liquorice and toasty notes. In the mouth, the entry displays volume and structure ; the palate is fleshy and dense, full of finesse. The supple, precise finish boasts tasty tannins that bring length and elegance. Château Fontesteau 2015 is expressive, fruity and delicate, a true image of this beautiful vintage.

Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the 2015 Fontesteau has a generous bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, cedar and sous bois scents that are nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, quite fine tannin, plenty of edgy red fruit and impressive delineation on the finish that shows focus and length. This is recommended. Bravo. Tasted September 2017.

This rich, spicy wine has a toasty element from the new-wood aging and also plenty of ripe, berry fruits and balanced acidity. It comes from a 74-acre vineyard that surround a 13th-century castle. This generous wine will age well. Drink from 2023.

The 2015 Château Fontesteau is a beautiful 2015 from vines west of Pauillac and made from roughly 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Merlot and a splash of Cabernet Franc. Loaded with notions of red fruits (cherries, framboise), flowers and hints of cedar and vanilla, it's medium-bodied, elegant and silky on the palate, with fine tannin. It's an impressive wine that will keep for 10-12 years.
