This velvety French blend of Carignane, Grenache and Mourvèdre has been made from a single, ancient plot of vines since 1973.
What You Need To Know
France’s vast Languedoc region, which spans much of its Mediterranean coast, churns out a lot of uninteresting table wine; it’s also dotted with thousands of tiny estates offering fantastic wines made in small quantities from very old vines. Domaine de Fontsainte is a terrific example of the latter. The Laboucarié family established the estate in its current incarnation in 1971, though the property’s history dates back centuries. Brune Laboucarié makes the Réserve La Demoiselle cuvée in much the same way his father did, using fruit from a vineyard planted to a mix of traditional varieties in 1904. The gnarled old vines push out just a few bunches of deeply concentrated grapes each year, which explains this red’s terrific complexity.
