“ECLAT” DE FONT BARRIELE – IGP Pays D’Oc Rosé 2017
APPELLATION: IGP D’OC
Varietals: 100% GRENACHE
If the Rhône Valley terrace of galets (rounded pebbles) that houses our vineyards could talk, it would surely tell the story of a winemaking family who, for 4 generations, has been patiently coaxing from its terroir the delicate yet powerful expression of an age-old vineyard, with its Mediterranean roots.
Along with preserving our winemaking heritage, we are also protecting here an endangered bird, the Little Bustard, that nests in the heart of our vineyards, which is situated in a Natura 2000 habitat. On the border of the Costières de Nîmes and Côtes du Rhône appellations, where Arles, Nimes and Avignon converge, the Château Font Barrièle is a discreet jewel at the heart of a treasure trove of history.
