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!

A good doctor prescribed the wine of Nuits-Saint-Georges to the Sun King, Louis XIV, when he suffered an unknown maladie. When the king’s health was restored the tasty remedy enjoyed a vogue at court. Lord, send me a doctor like that!
