A remarkable terroir, at the crossroad of Vallée du Rhône and Provence
The Domaine de Fontenille enjoys exceptional terroir. The vines
draw their strength from the clay, limestone and stony soil. The slightly
steep slopes provide perfect sunshine and better water drainage. The Provence
Mistral naturally cleans the grape.
The vine is tended so as to minimize treatments and ensures that the grapes obtain the best possible maturity while respecting natural cycles.
Good wine depends primarily on the quality of the grape.
The Fontenille vineyard consists of Luberon PDO characterized grape varieties: Syrah, Grenache Noir, Grenache Blanc, Vermentino, but also more advanced varieties to create special cuvées: Viognier, Petite Syrah, Mourvèdre... with a production that is split between red wines (35%), white wines (15%) and rosés (50%).
The 2015 rosé wine, 1st cuvée orchestrated by Laurence Berlemont, has already received several medals.
