Château Fontainebleau, Fontainebleau 2016
12 in stock
The warm climate of Provence is moderated by the geography of this vineyard. Set in an amphitheatre, which offers some protection from the sun, offering a long hang time on the vine for the grapes, allowing them to develop flavour whilst retaining acidity.
This is a full bodied, sturdy Provençal blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, from a vineyard set within an old amphitheatre. The latter lends some deep blackcurrant fruit, and the former gives some savoury depth – think briny black olives.
