Food Pairings for Château de Fontenille Entre-Deux-Mers
Vines have been grown at Fontenille since the 13th Century; a pilgrimage route, protected by UNESCO, runs through the vineyards to the neighbouring Abbaye de la Sauve Majeure, whose monks tended the vines for hundreds of years. Stéphane Defraine bought the property in 1989 and has gradually renovated the buildings and replanted and extended the vineyards. He now owns 42 hectares, of which 12 hectares are white wine varieties and 30 are red. The wines represent excellent value, with considerably more weight, interest and purity of fruit than other examples at this price. This Entre-deux-Mers Blanc is pale lemon in colour with green tints. Fantastically fresh and vibrant on the nose with aromas of fresh citrus fruits and some grassy notes. On the palate it is light with plenty of fruit character and a refreshing acidity on the finish, making it a delightful aperitif or great partner to shellfish, sushi or grilled fish.
