A plot selection from La Crau, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Elegance de Jeanne features wonderfully floral scents of roses and lavender. It's full-bodied and creamy in texture yet nearly weightless, and it carries a firm tannic kick and plenty of peppery-licorice spice on the long finish.

94-96 points | Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate

(Formerly labelled as Font de Michelle)

This wine is a special tribute to Jeanne Gonnet, wife of Etienne Gonnet who created the Font de Michelle estate. It is only released in the most exceptional years. Rich and opulent wine with a big aromatic complexity (black cherry, blackberry, cocoa, bay, black pepper and liquorice), pure and elegant.

Domaine Font de Michelle owns 27 hectares of vines in the Chateauneuf region. Like many estates, the soils and terroirs are spread-out and varied, with different soils. Their best land is situated on the famous La Crau plateau.
