Domaine de Fontsainte Corbieres Gris de Gris Rose 2017

Winemaker's Notes:

All of Fontsainte’s vineyards are situated within the Corbières Boutenac appellation. However, only “Clos du Centurion” takes the appellation on the label; other cuvées take the Corbières appellation Rigorous pruning along with green harvests keep yields low Existing vines are pruned in a goblet; new vines are being trellised Cuves are gravity-fed—a mix of temperature-controlled stainless steel and cement Corbières “Gris de Gris” Rosé: Hand harvested Gris de Gris is blended by saignée After a 24-hour débourbage or settling of the must, alcoholic fermentation takes place at cool temperatures for 35 days Malolactic fermentation is blocked Wines rest for one month before bottling to preserve freshness and aromatic intensity
