2016 Corbières Rosé “Gris de Gris”

Domaine de Fontsainte

2016 Corbières Rosé “Gris de Gris” Domaine de Fontsainte - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



Two whole months. That’s how long we’ve been sold out of the Fontsainte Gris de Gris rosé—nearly an eternity for some of our clients. But wine is not a widget. It’s a finely crafted agricultural product, and supply is dependent on the whims of nature. Though we’d like to have this wine available year-round, its selling out is a useful reminder that even our most widely available wines are hand-crafted and limited in production.
    The 2016 Gris de Gris is delicate and lively, featuring light strawberry fruit and just a touch of Languedoc garrigue—refreshment restored, once again.–Clark Z. Terry
