Name Ch. Fontanes Les Traverses de Fontanes 2017 (ID# 3210)
Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
Region France: Pays d'Oc
Notes "Cyriaque Rozier, the highly acclaimed winemaker and vineyard manager at Château La Roque, makes his own wine under the label Château Fontanès in Pic St-Loup in the Languedoc. Though Cyriaque is within the boundaries of the appellation Pic St-Loup, the lion’s share of his production is Cabernet Sauvignon, a grape varietal that is outside of the constraints set for the AOC in the Languedoc. Les Traverses is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from vines planted in 1970 and is aged up to one year in stainless steel." (Kermit Lynch) Excellent for the price!
