Story

Terroir
The Domaine des Fontenys is located in the heart of the Bourgueil appellation. Some of the Domaine's plots (about 10 ha), some of which have been planted for more than a century, are isolated each year for their ability to provide concentrated, beautifully ripe grapes.
Careful harvesting, a terroir of character (clay-limestone), on the south-facing slopes of Restigné, and sustainable cultivation all contribute to producing a generous and elegant wine year after year.
Vinification
Grapes harvested at full maturity. Traditional vinification. Fermentation at moderate temperature to preserve the aromatic potential of the grapes. Long maceration (20 days) with gentle extraction.
Ageing
Aged for 8 months before bottling.
Varietals
Cabernet franc : 100%

Advice

Serving
Served slightly chilled (14-16°C).
Tasting notes
Young, deep ruby colour with purple tints. Charming, it reveals intense aromas of black fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant), fresh fruits (raspberry) and fern. A hint of spice (black pepper) and empyreumatic (grilled). Supple, fleshy, with a spicy attack, evolving then on fruit, undergrowth and some floral notes of violet. Beautiful silky structure and good power in the evolution with assertive tannins. Fresh and liquorice finish.
Food and wine pairings
This wine will accompany roasted white meats, grilled meats (brochette magret) or red meats (rack of lamb with rosemary), small game (pheasant), soft cheeses (St Nectaire, livarot).
