FRANCE

Bordeaux takes the crown for the most convoluted labelling system in France. For starters, it’s still based on an 1885 classification where châteaux were classed as different ‘growths’. It’s enough to give anyone a headache – and that’s before you’ve even opened the bottle. Luckily, ‘Crus Bourgeois’ is a label which can steer you through the hundreds of Petits Châteaux like a beacon of quality. And Château Fontesteau is one of the classics. It’s old-school claret, with a robust structure and fine tannins which will last for years. Being Haut-Médoc, it’s mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, so it’s full of those classic Cabernet cassis flavours. Rich. Full. Concentrated. It’s nice and red-fruity – think cherry and strawberry. Perfect with a good cheese board.

Great when it was on offer at £10, not sure it's a £20 (£17 mix six) wine though.

Ordered seven bottles have drunk four so far. One was very nice, one was past its best and the other two were not far behind it.

Good value at £10 but not a £20 wine if that was its original price.

Let breath for a good hour to remove the rough edges, drink once opened - does not keep well for a second night. Somewhat thin. I thought fair value at £10, not convinced at £20

Not as interesting nor hearty as other Médocs in this price range. It was a bit weak and disappointing. Aired it for an hour at room temperature (18.5).
