Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, Domaine Font de Michelle 2018

White Wine from France - Rhone
2.000000000 star rating 1 Reviews
In such a reduced Rhône harvest, the Gonnets have had to buy in in grapes to create this delicious white Châteauneuf, a wine that would be perfect with clams over a bed of linguini.

Domaine Font de Michelle

The Font de Michelle estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape was created by Etienne Gonnet in 1950. His sons, Jean and Michel took charge after him and now their own sons Bertrand and Guillaume have taken over in their turn.

Font means ‘fountain’ or in this case ‘spring’; in other words, a sure guarantee of the presence of water in this arid land. The vineyards are very low yielding and most of the work is done by hand, using no artificial fertiliser or insecticides. A more modern approach is taken in the cellar in order to make softer, rounder wines.

Everything is destemmed, as woody elements can create hard herbaceous flavours in the wine. Maceration is gentle under rigorous temperature control. The wines are raised in oak for 18 months, part foudres and part barrel.
