Domaine de Fontavin Côtes du Rhône Rouge Les Vignes de Mon Père: A Taste of Tradition

Uncorking a Legacy: The Allure of Les Vignes de Mon Père

At The General Wine Company, we take pride in curating a selection that transcends the ordinary. Domaine de Fontavin's Côtes du Rhône Rouge Les Vignes de Mon Père, translating to "My Father's Vines," is a testament to this very philosophy. This organic red wine, bottled poetry from the heart of the Rhône Valley, boasts a rich history and a flavour profile that is both captivating and eminently food-friendly.

A Blend Steeped in Heritage

Les Vignes de Mon Père is a blend dominated by the soul of the southern Rhône - Grenache noir. This grape variety makes up 75% of the wine, imbuing it with characteristic warmth, spice, and notes of red fruit. Syrah (10%) adds a touch of peppery intrigue, while Mourvèdre (10%) contributes structure and a hint of earthiness. Rounding out the blend is the lesser-known Marselan (5%), a charismatic grape that offers notes of black fruit and violets. The combined effect is a symphony of flavours, each element playing its part to create a truly captivating whole.

The Essence of the Rhône Valley in Every Sip

The first impression upon swirling Les Vignes de Mon Père in the glass is its captivating colour - a deep garnet with flashes of violet. On the nose, a beguiling bouquet unfolds, redolent with aromas of ripe cherries, plums, and a touch of spice. Hints of garrigue, the characteristic herbal fragrance of the Rhône Valley, add a touch of complexity.

As the wine caresses the palate, a wave of juicy red fruit flavours takes centre stage. The Grenache's warmth is complemented by the Syrah's peppery edge, while the Mourvèdre provides a backbone of structure. The Marselan's contribution of black fruit and violets lingers on the finish, leaving a lasting impression.

Organic Cultivation: Respecting the Land

Domaine de Fontavin is a passionate advocate for organic viticulture. The grapes that go into Les Vignes de Mon Père are meticulously cultivated using sustainable practices. This commitment to organic farming not only ensures the health of the vines but also allows the unique character of the terroir - the combination of soil, climate, and topography - to shine through in the final product.

The Perfect Pairing Awaits
