Tasting Notes

Fruit-forward and juicy red fruits lead to a medium-weight palate and stony finish.

This is a very versatile wine and would work very well with many foods:  salmon, pasta, roasted chicken or turkey, beans, eggplant, mushrooms, pork, smoked meat, pizza and barbeque, for example. 

 

About the Wine     

Domaine de Fenouillet has been in the hands of the Soard Family for many generations.  Until 1989 the grapes were harvested and immediately sold to the growers' cooperative. Vincent and Patrick Soard took over direction of the domaine in 1989 and, at that point, began to vinify their harvest and bottle the wines now made at the estate.

 

The vineyards of the domaine are scattered over seven different communes. The appellations include Vin de Pays de Vaucluse, Ventoux (vineyards in the communes of Saint Hippolyte, Piniere, Aubignan and Barroux), Muscat de Beaumes de Venise and Beaumes de Venise (vineyards in Beaumes de Venise, La Roque Alric and Suzette). The Soard family has always farmed with great concern for the environment and now all of the wines produced at the domaine are certified organic and they adhere to biodynamic principles.

 

The entire harvest is done manually. Grapes for this blend were grown on soils of sandstone and marl.  Grapes were destemmed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in concrete tanks. After 6 months the wine is bottled unfined and lightly filtered. A very low amount of Sulphur is used.
