Domaine de Fontsainte

Rouge

AOC Corbières

 

 

              

 

Soil
Silica-clay-limestone; gritty and gravely with some pudding stones.
Grapes

60% Carignan; 30% Grenache Noir; 10% Syrah.

Vinification
The grapes are picked by hand and placed whole into the vat for a temperature-controlled carbonic maceration lasting 14 days.
 

 

Eye
A sustained and very brilliant ruby colour with beautiful violet tints.
Nose
Immediate and generous with, at first, notes of fresh red fruits, such as cherries and black fruits, such as blueberries. Next, the richness develops with notes of cacao powder and a delicate touch of liquorice.
Palate
Round and concentrated attack with a balanced structure in the mouth, the tannins are delicate and the acidity luscious. Everything showcases the fruit, which follows up with a long finish.

 In Summary
Demonstrative of the entire Fontsainte personality, this very expressive wine is a harmonious reflection of authenticity and fruit. Ideal with a mushroom tart, grilled mullet with red fruits, yakitoris or a braised red meat...
   
 Serve at 16°c.
