Production information

Producer: Domaine de Font-Sane

Domaine Font-Sane is artisan winemaking with a real basis of quality. Many of the vines are situated up on the terraces under the jagged Dentelles de Montmirail hills and thus get a breather from the heat of the summer, giving the wines with a telltale freshness and clarity. The 15ha domaine is not organically certified, but they only use organic fertilizers and are working towards becoming biodynamic.

Production note

The harvest is the result of the blending of five soil categories. Hand sorted and picked, the grapes are then lightly crushed without de-stemming and vatted for fifteen days in concrete tanks. Small amount of micro-oxygenation and malolactic fermentation in tanks. Matured in large oak tuns for 6-10 months.
