Château Fontenil

The winery is located in the Saillans district in the Fronsac appellation (Bordeaux). Since 1986 it has been owned by the famous star oenologist Michel Rolland. The property of several winegrowers was thus combined. The vineyards cover nine hectares and are planted with Merlot (90%) and Cabernet Franc (10%). The long-lasting red wine is aged in 50% new barriques.

As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.
