Robert Parker reviews :-

The solidly made 1993 Fonsalette Cotes du Rhone will offer delicious drinking over the next decade. It reveals a healthy dark ruby color, a robust, roasted herb, black-cherry, and peppery nose, and good
ripeness and richness.

and

This closed Syrah requires 5-6 more years of cellaring. An opaque black/purple-colored wine with considerable tannin and intensity, it is immensely weighty and powerful on the palate. There is a degree of austerity in the 1993 that is not present in the unbottled 1994 (a mid-90 point wine). The 1993 is a well-endowed, rich, structured wine for 15-20+ years of cellaring.

The closed 1993 Syrah may merit an outstanding rating after 5-6 more years of cellaring. An opaque black/purple-colored wine with considerable tannin and intensity, it is immensely weighty and powerful on the palate. There is a degree of austerity in the 1993 that is not present in the unbottled 1994 (a mid-90 point wine). The 1993 is a well-endowed, rich, structured wine for 15-20+ years of cellaring. Fonsalette's micro-climate allows it to harvest several weeks before its big sister, Rayas. In both 1993 and 1994, Rayas was adversely impacted by the late September rains. Yet Fonsalette had finished the harvest before any rain arrived.

Other details

From the stable of Chateau Rayas, Fonsalette is no mere Cotes du Rhone.
This is the much praised cuvee Syrah.
Kept in my temperature controlled cellar since purchase, this is in excellent all round condition.
