Introducing the Domaine de Fontavin Côtes du Rhône Blanc La Petite Robe, a delightful organic white wine from the sun-drenched Rhône Valley in southern France. This charming bottle offers a perfect balance of freshness, fruit flavours, and floral notes, making it a fantastic choice for any occasion.

Domaine de Fontavin: A Commitment to Quality

Domaine de Fontavin is a family-run winery situated in Courthézon, a commune within the Rhône Valley. With a dedication to organic viticulture for over 20 years, they craft wines that showcase the region's unique terroir. Their Côtes du Rhône Blanc La Petite Robe embodies this philosophy, utilising sustainable practices throughout the winemaking process.

Grape Varietals and Viticulture

La Petite Robe is a blend of four Rhône Valley white grape varietals: Grenache Blanc (50%), Marsanne (15%), Roussanne (15%), and Viognier (20%). The grapes are grown on clay-limestone soils with an average vine age of 30 years. The Domaine employs organic farming practices, including ploughing, natural grass cover, and compost application, ensuring healthy vines and vibrant fruit expression in the wine.

Winemaking Process

The grapes for La Petite Robe are harvested by hand in early September to capture optimal freshness. Following a gentle pressing, the must undergoes a cool fermentation at low temperatures. This technique helps preserve the delicate fruit aromatics and acidity in the wine. Notably, La Petite Robe undergoes no malolactic fermentation, which retains its crisp and refreshing character. Finally, the wine is filtered before bottling, ensuring a clear and polished presentation.

Tasting Notes: A Journey for the Senses

La Petite Robe pours a beautiful pale yellow colour with green highlights, hinting at its refreshing nature. On the nose, you'll be greeted by a symphony of delicate aromas. White pear, acacia flower, and hints of citrus mingle effortlessly, creating an inviting and elegant bouquet.

The first sip reveals a delightful balance of fruit flavours and acidity. The Grenache Blanc contributes a touch of juicy pear and white peach, while the Marsanne and Roussanne add a layer of honeysuckle and floral notes. The Viognier brings a touch of richness and roundness to the palate, beautifully complementing the vibrant acidity. The finish is clean and crisp, leaving a lingering sensation of freshness.
