Domaine de Fontsainte Corbières 2018
Domaine de Fontsainte is in the heart of the Corbieres' celebrated 'Golden Crescent' - one of the appellation’s most beautiful and beneficent terroirs. Fontsainte's intensely sunny, gently sloping, south south-east facing vineyards shelter from cold north-east winds on the flank of a 500-hectare pinewood massif. The domain dominates the landscape around the hamlet of Boutenac, enjoying panoramic views. Fontsainte's vineyards, just 90m in altitude, benefit from a pristine environment (far from industrial or urban developments) plus alternating Mediterranean and oceanic influences.
2018 Corbières rouge is as complete and consistent as ever, with notes of black cherries, blackberries, and garrigue. This wine is a meal unto itself, but it will pair beautifully with a wide range of grilled meats and vegetables. 60% Carignan, 30% Grenache, 10% Syrah.
