Chateau Fontesteau 2002 Ht Médoc C Bourgeois
The magic of blending confers a unique style to each : The Cabernet Sauvignon is always the dominant variety in the Château Fontesteau blend, a deep and elegant wine.
Three-quarters of the blend is aged for 12 months in barrels (25% new) for a fine-tuning of the tannins.
A quarter of the total volume stays in vat to ensure a certain freshness and conserve the pleasant fruitiness before the bottling is carried out from may.
According to personal taste, Château Fontesteau wines are at their best after 5 to 10 years in the cellar yet never disappoint those patient enough to wait 20 years or even more.
