Domaine de Fontbonau

Domaine de Fontbonau is the personal domaine of Frederic Engerer, who in his day job manages the prestigious estates owned by Francois Pinault (France's second richest man): Chateau Latour in Bordeaux; Domaine Eugenie in Burgundy; and the recently aquired Araujo Estate in the Napa Valley.

A single wine is produced, a blend of old vine Syrah and Grenache plantefd in sandy, silty clay soils in the Fontbonau lieu-dit around 350m elevation.  The quality and style of this wine is everything you would expect from as illustrious a heritage as Engerer's.  The wine feels and tastes like a top-quality Chateauneuf-du-Pape, not surprising given it's location only about 50kms to the northeast.

Very polished, modern and clean with great depth and fruit purity tend to be the hallmarks of Fontbonau's wines, and longevity is assured.  Tremendous wines that far exceed their appellation.
