Fontimple Bio, AOC Vacqueyras, Blanc, 2018

Story

The wine
According to legend, a weathly, muchadmired medieval lord, who loved good wine, planted some vines and discovered the extraordinary elegance of the wines they produced. Today a hamlet in Vacqueyras still proudly bears his name. From this period, we have retained the know-how, determination, and finesse embolied in this wine, made from 100% organically-grown grapes.
Terroir
Cru Vacqueyras is a blend of wines from various parts of the appellation with different terroirs : soils with river stones on the surface, zaffer, and deep clay.
Vinification
Our vineyard management and winemaking methods, handed down through several generations, make the very most of the Vacqueyras terroir. The grapes are brought to the winery in the cool of the early-morning and undergo skin contact at 10°C to extract all the fresh fruit flavours and roundness. The wine is then aged on its lees to retain maximum freshness.
