Château Fontainebleau

France - Montfort Sur Argens

This estate dates back to the 17th century and takes its name from a nearby river, which helps to provide an environment of wet subsoil. This means that the vines endure less heat during the summer, resulting in delicate and elegant red, white and rosé wines produced using only biodynamic methods.                   

Spanning 27 hectares across a number of parcels, the vines at Château Fontainebleau grow alongside olive trees amid a landscape of rolling hills. Each parcel of land is dedicated to a single grape variety, either Ugni Blanc, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Vermentino, Cinsault or Carignan. The soils are highly diverse, but there is a prevalence of volcanic tuff rock, limestone clay and iron oxide-rich red mudstone.

 

 

Due to the vineyard's configuration, the grapes can only be picked up by hand. This enables the domain to harvest parcels separately, letting others continue to ripen, and thus improving the production quality. 

Since 2013 Valerie Courreges is in charged of the vinification, having the challenge to express in the wine all the complexity and unicity of this exceptional terroir.
