Cold static settling for a minimum of 48 hours. 3 weeks mono varietal fermentation in demi-muids (500L barrels) at a temperature of 15°C).

  • Aging

    10 months in Austrian demi-muids (500L barrels) over fine lees. Clarification by racking and filtration before bottling.

  • Tasting

    Generous nose transporting us in a field where red small berry trees are growing under the sun. Strawberry, redcurrant blended with hints of exotic aromas (jasmine, coco).
    Silky and delicate mouth bringing back mall red berries with livelyness and freshness. Long lasting after taste with salinity, signature of Domaine de Fontenille's wines.

  • Wine &
    food pairing

    The structure of the wine allows original wine and food pairings, salty and suggary.
    Luberon's goat cheese platter, a generous strawberry pie, haddock and grapefruit salad... Focus on summer and/or sophisticated dishes.

    One watchword : D.A.R.E. !
