Vignobles Fontan 2011 Domaine de Maubet  Tannat-Merlot (Côtes de Gascogne)

abv: 12% | Price Tier: $

Resolutely opaque with a minute, red plum-colored rim. Fresh fruit aromas leap from the glass. Supremely ripe blueberry competes with black plum accented by damp forest floor smells. Very pure flavors of briar patch fruits and blueberry surface immediately. There’s an intriguing mix of flavors that make for an exciting experience with each return to the glass. The tannins are more than slightly rugged, in a most pleasing way, and the acidity hits just the right inflection so that it’s present but not assertive. An engaging glass. Drink now to 2017.
