The Story: Wine has been made in Domaine de Font-Sane since 1860, and the estate is proud to be one of Gigondas' foremost producers. With an approach that marries tradition with contemporary winemaking knowledge, the estate is currently run by Véronique and Bernard Cunty, as well as their son Romain. Together, they have a deep knowledge of the terroir and take great pride in producing wine which honors the region's legacy but with a nod towards modern taste.
Why You’ll Love Me: Pours a lovely clear garnet; look for an intense nose with blackberry jam, vanilla and mocha. The body is round and velvety with an arch tannic quality before a long, even finish with notes of plum and black fruit.
