Wine Makers Notes:
Freshly picked white flowers, citrus, pear, tropical fruits, hints of acacia honey and apricot.
Food pairing: Wonderful with seafood, particularly fresh scallops, lobster, fish, or served as an aperitif with freshly shucked oysters. Aged whites marry splendidly with Roquefort or Comté cheese or served as an alternative to sweet wine with foie gras.
Blend: 30% Grenache, 30% Roussane, 30% Clarette, 10% Bourboulenc
One of our favourite Rhone producers. They are well worth a visit if you are ever in the area.
Domaine Font de Michelle owns 27 hectares of vines in the Chateauneuf region. 25 hectares are used for planting red wine grapes and 2 hectares are reserved for the production of Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc. Like many estates, the soils and terroirs are spread-out and varied, with different soils. Their best land is situated on the La Crau plateau. They also have vines in the Croix de Bois lieu-dit they purchased in 2016. They have a south east facing terroir with rocks, stone, clay and limestone soils. However, their vineyards are widely dispersed throughout the appellation. The vineyards are farmed using organic farming techniques.
