Cdp Domaine Font de Michelle 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Im Bouquet ist die Aromenpalette zuerst zurückhaltend, nach und nach entpuppt sich der Wein an der Luft jedoch immer mehr als verführerisch, subtil und saftig. Aromen von Blumen, Veilchen, Rosen, Heidelbeeren, Kirschen, schwarzen Johannisbeeren und frischere Noten von Süssholz und Pfefferminze kommen zum Vorschein. Im Geschmack erinnert er mit seiner seidigen Materie und Aromen von schwarzen und roten, konfitürartigen Früchten an Sonne. Der Wein ist kräftig, behält dennoch eine schöne Finesse und viel Subtilität.

According to local archives, the Gonnet family has been settled at Bédarrides since 1600… In 1880 Jean Etienne Gonnet built the farmhouse that serves as the headquarters of the estate today. His grandson, Etienne Gonnet, created Font de Michelle in 1950. This 30 hectare vineyard - adjoining land connected all in one lot - is magnificently situated in the southeast of the Châteauneuf du Pape AOC. A mayor of Bédarrides from 1952 until 1964, Etienne Gonnet was an example of perseverance and rigour in his day. Since 1975 his sons, Jean and Michel, have kept watch over the destiny of the estate. For over 30 years their concern has been to improve on wine making methods, to develop full-bodied wines that are concentrated, refined and through which the ‘terroir’ can express all of its qualities and thus, in so doing, elevate the estate’s renown to its highest level. Today, their respective sons, Bertrand and Guillaume, bestow their enthusiasm and skill, in turn. In 2002 the estate expanded with a magnificent 20 ha Côtes du Rhône and Côtes du Rhône Signargues property situated at Domazan in the Gard - La Font du Vent. Parallel to both properties, the limited liability company, Gonnet Pères et Fils, sees to the distribution of the Font de Michelle and Font du Vent wines for the export market. The company also offers, under its own brand, wines from the Rhône valley that it selects with the utmost care. Read less
