Cabernet Sauvignon from Haut-Medoc, Bordeaux, France

B-21 Top Recommendation

2016 are wines that represent well their terroir with precision; articulate – expressing their commune. Tasting these en primeur two years ago, the wines of Palmer, Mouton, Leoville las Cases and Cos d'Estournel were singing full throated – to mention a few. This is the theme of 2016, in particular the Cabernet. Young Lynch Bages, Clerc Milon and Poyferre... I could go on.

90V

The 2016 Fontesteau has an elegant bouquet with cedar-infused black fruit, hints of truffle and bay leaf developing with aeration. The palate is well balanced with fine grain tannin, taut and linear but with impressive energy and tension towards the finish. This is a very well crafted Haut-Médoc that should give a decade’s worth of drinking pleasure. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London.

90 points, Neal Martin, Vinous (Oct 2018)
