Bold and wild with undeniable energy—this describes not only the Château Fontanès Pic Saint-Loup Rosé, but also the land it comes from. A blend of Syrah and Mourvèdre from a garrigue-strewn, biodynamic vineyard, this rosé is an authentic product of its terroir. The rugged and sun-soaked landscape shines through as you sniff and swirl your glass and the marly limestone soil from which the vines grow impart a subtle mineral structure and fantastic length on the finish. What’s more, as Kermit likes, this rosé finishes malolactic fermentation (a rare practice these days), thus rendering a richer, less filtered, more voluptuous rosé.
Be forewarned, the bottle will not last long. Get your case now and be ready for those warm, sunny days ahead!

Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
