The Rolland family property has produced a classic wine, fresh and fruity, with just a gentle touch of wood. It has some ripe fruitiness that is forward and attractive.

Fresh, with a savory edge to the notes of raspberry coulis and cherry preserves. A briary hint lines the finish. Direct. —J.M.

Robert Parker - Wine Advocate
One of the stars of the Right Bank’s less prestigious Fronsac region, Fontenil is owned by Michel and Dany Rolland. No luxury cuvee Le Defi de Fontenil was produced in this vintage, but the 2013 Fontenil boasts a dark ruby/purple color as well as lots of raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with a floral note, medium body, unobtrusive acids, and a shorter than usual, but still adequate finish. It should drink well for 5-7 years.

I like the mineral, berry and leaf character here. Medium to full body, firm tannins, fresh finish.

Bright medium ruby.  Ripe, slightly high-toned aromas of black cherry and milk chocolate lifted by violet.  Fairly big, rich and pliant, with ripe but energetic dark berry and smoky flavors persisting nicely. Finishes with sweet tannins and a repeating floral note.

A Michel Rolland wine. Nose clean but restrained. Juicy fuit and fine persistent  tannins. Well executed - nothing pushed16/20
