Pure fruit and pleasure. This wine is a wonderfully diverse wine, displaying red and dark fruits and fresh, peppery finish.
Wine Makers Notes
A delightful mouthful of red fruits and licorice, blended with just the right touch of spice, an easy, delightful drinking wine.
Food pairing: ”Les Promesses” is a wine that marries well with spicy foods such as North African couscous or Asian curry, barbecued red meats, and cheeses. It is also an excellent wine as an aperitif, to enyoy with friends.
Blend: 70 % Grenache, 30% Syrah
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.
