Domaine de Fontsainte sits in the heart of the Corbières appellation, with family roots dating back to the 17th century. Now headed by Bruno Laboucarié, the winery continues to be a strong advocate for whole-cluster fermentation, as well as vigorous pruning, for the sake of keeping yields low. Fontsainte’s vineyards are located around the region’s ‘Golden Crescent,’ benefiting from optimal sunlight and cooling Mediterranean sea breezes. Their ‘Gris de Gris’ rosé is produced from hand=harvested fruit vinified in the saignée method and cold-fermented for 35 days, which creates a salty, thirst-quenching wine full of cherry and tart peach flavors. Mineral-laced undertones and prominent acidity add to the saline-driven finish.
