What the Critics say
Vivid straw. Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of Anjou pear and Meyer lemon develop hints of smoky lees, iodine and anise as the wine opens up. Sappy, concentrated and sharply focused, offering lively citrus and orchard fruit and brioche flavors sharpened by a smoky mineral nuance. Finishes minerally and quite long; an echo of citrus zest adds bite and focus.
The Font De Michelle estate, created in 1950, is composed of 30ha in Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC and complemented by Font Du Vent and its 20ha of Côtes du Rhône. The Font De Michelle and Font Du Vent wines are elegant and powerful wines elaborated on an exceptional terroir.
‘This domaine should be much more famous than it is. Year in, year out, it makes some of my favourite drinking Châteauneuf-Du-Pape…’ – Tim Atkins MW
