Domaine de Fontsainte Corbieres Gris de Gris Rose 2018

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 gobelet; 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 blend 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
