CHATEAU DE FONTCREUSE

CHATEAU DE FONTCREUSEChâteau de FONTCREUSE is an elegant masonry whose construction was completed in 1700. In this beginning of XVIIIe century, the residence profited from running water what was extremely rare at the time. Water came from underground sources which fed a gallery dug under the hill which provided out of water the Winegrowing and its dependences, which gave its Nom to Château “FONTCREUSE”. The property extends on 34 hectares of which 31 hectares are planted, 16 hectares for the wine White de Cassis, 9 hectares for the wine Rosé de Cassis and 6 hectares for the wine Red. It should be recalled that the color of reference for the Cassis appellation is before all Blanc; rare and single product in an area Provence accustomed to produce the Rosé one.
For Blanc, the vintage 2011 is resulting mainly from Marsanne (60%), which brings delicate aromas, smoothness, the fleshy one and length in mouth, of Clairette (15%), which gives freshness as for ugni blanc (25%), it brings this delicate key of acidity essential to balance. The Rosé one at majority base of Grenache (80%) associated with Cinsault (20%) gives a wine of elegant nature with fullness and red fruit.
You will be able to discover this Cassis Blanc 2011, really superb, floral, suave, complex, all in aromatic persistence where delicate nuances of peach and pink are detected. The 2010 dense and are scented, fresh and suave at the same time, a very nice wine which releases from subtle aromas of almond and lime, all in harmony, of a full and floral final. The 2009 are very elegant, with the notes characteristic of hazel nut, a wine of beautiful robe, farm and suave mouth, very persistent, all in harmony, of a nice smoothness, all in distinction and richness at the same time. Taste Cassis rosé 2011, all in roundness, with the nose of small dried fruits (apricot), all in freshness, charmer.
