€35.95The deep ruby 2010 Fontenil has aromas of violets, plums, blackberries and cedar, followed on the palate by succulent fruits with wonderful freshness and velvety tannins. This is a wonderful Fronsac, of good balance and depth, which will be a lovely near-term drink but will also keep well for the next ten years. Learn More

Well balanced. No brute but no coquette either. Great vivaciousness and balance. (Score: 17-18/20) jancisrobinson.com Drink 2020-2035 Learn More
Out of stock"The 2010 blew me away on each occasion I tasted it during my two week sojourn in Bordeaux. Tannic and concentrated, this huge Pauillac boasts an inky/purple color as well as impressive notes of creme de cassis, smoke, graphite and spring flowers. This dense, seriously endowed, monstrous Lynch Bages is reminiscent of some of the wines made at this estate in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. It will require 4-5 years of cellaring and should be drinkable for 3-4 decades". 95-97 points, Robert Parker. Note: en primeur conditions apply. Price excludes duty, VAT & shipping, these will be charged at the prevailing rates when the wines are shipped ex-Bordeaux in 2013. Learn More
