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 grapes are handpicked and sorted, then lightly crushed without de-stemming and fermented in vats over fifteen days. Small amount of micro-oxygenation occurs, and malolactic fermentation is also carried out. The wine is matured in oak casks for 6-10 months before bottling.
