Importer's Note: 

"As much as I love Dolcetto and Beaujolais, I get a thrill when I dip my nose into a glass of wine and the first sensation I get is not one of fruit. Like many great southern French rouges, one whiff of this Corbières takes you to a spice cabinet or a Mediterranean field full of aromatic herbs. Combine these with notes of black cherries and black olives, and you have a sense of what this dark, succulent red is all about." - Tom Wolf 

About the Producer: 

"The first vineyards at Domaine de Fontsainte were planted by the Romans. The original domaine was built around a thermal spring, which was later named for the local, 12th-century patron saint, Saint Siméon; hence Fontsainte—the saint’s fount. Yves Laboucarié’s family has been making wine here since the 17th century. For over 30 years, KLWM has been proudly importing his wine, and now we work with his son, Bruno. Like his father, he believes in the family’s legacy of innovation. He has re-equipped the cellars, replanted vines, and added new cuvées. It’s no secret why we’ve been working with them since ‘78. Year in and year out, they are the best. The fairness of their pricing allows us to offer incredible values to our clientele."
