Les Fontanilles, 2018 | Minervois, Languedoc
Region: Minervois, Languedoc
Grapes: Syrah, Grenache, Carignan & Cinsault
Tasting Note: Ripe, black cherry fruit and a firm mineral streak. Sumptuous and velvety yet remarkably fresh.
Background: Made by the famous Burgundian couple Anne Gros of Domaine Anne Gros in Vosne-Romanée and Jean-Paul of Domaine Tollot-Beaut in Chorey-lès-Beaune, these wines are wonderful examples of refined, sophisticated winemaking from less famous terroirs.
The fruit is fully de-stemmed and ageing is 50% in stainless steel and 50% oak barrels.
Serving: Room temp (15 - 17 °C).
