"A beautiful deep plum/garnet color reveals little evidence of eleven years of age. The wine’s striking nose of forest floor, blue and black fruits is followed by a medium to full-bodied, opulent, fresh, lively, impressively endowed Fronsac that is clearly a sleeper of the vintage. It should continue to drink well for 6-10 years."

"Fontenil is the home estate of the brilliant husband and wife oenologists, Michel and Dany Rolland. The authoritative, dark ruby/purple-tinged 2003 Fontenil offers hints of plums, blackberries, blueberries, charcoal, and smoke in its ripe, dense, moderately tannic personality. Give this broad, savory, full-bodied effort 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 12-14 years."

"A powerful, concentrated, deep, textured offering from the home property of Dany and Michel Rolland, the dense purple-colored 2003 boasts sweet notes of licorice, incense, black currants, and minerals. With supple tannin as well as low acidity, it should admirably stand the test of time for at least 12-15 years."
