The Chaterau de Fontenille is a relatively humble house in the Entre Deux Mers region of Bordeaux, miles away from the imposing estate houses of the left bank. This is where most of Bordeaux’s best value wines come from, hearty reds and aromatic whites without all the fuss. Fontenille’s history dates back to the 13th century, when the vineyards were planted by monks from the nearby Abbaye de la Sauve Majeure. Four parts Merlot and one part Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine comes from grapes grown on a mix of soils including clay, sand and gravel. At the winery, the winemakers have balance in mind, using a mixture of oak and stainless steel to maintain the grape’s fruity and approachable character. Notes of black plum, blackcurrant, sandalwood, baker’s chocolate, allspice and sandalwood define the nose, while the palate follows with further touches of deep black cherry and currant, underbrush, and clay-lined earth. The tannins are stern and muscular, up to the task of holding in this full bodied, high octane wine. Dark fruit, chocolate, and earthy accents fill out the finish. This wine will do best next to rich cheeses, foie gras, and thoughtfully composed hamburgers.
