The whites

Château Fontvert blanc 2017

Organic wine


Winemaking
The Château Fontvert White 2017 comes from a selection of Vermentino (55%) and Grenache blanc (45%). Following a meticulous hand picking, a 24 hour skin maceration allows the extraction of essential aromatic precursors from the skin of the berries. Then wine is fermented in French oak barrels at controlled temperature of 16°C. 8 months of ageing in barrels, on the lees with regular stirring, brings a balance and a roundness to silky and essential aromas.

Ageing potential
4 to 5 years

Tasting notes
A very flowery nose, both peachy and exotic, is characteristic of this vintage. These aromatic notes linger in the mouth with a perfect balance between roundness and acidity.

Food pairings
This wine stands up perfectly with grilled fish, lobster, white meat with a light sauce, special cheeses (like fresh goat cheese) or even with foie gras. We recommend tasting between 8 and 10° C.

Tasting notes
This wine shows a very complex nose of tropical fruits, white flowers and honey, with hints of vanilla and toasted bread. The mouth is dense and smooth but keeps a delicate balance. Long finish on fruits, honey and vanilla aromas.

The 2016 Mourre blanc is recommended with shellfishs (lobster, crayfish, scallops) or with a white meat in sauce. It has to be served between 8 and 10° C.
