Fontanel, Rivesaltes Ambré, 2008

In Stock Now!

One of the most distinctive and exciting wines in our entire stock. From late-picked, 60 year-old vines of Grenache Blanc and Gris, the Ambré - literally amber - tone develops after at least five years of mildly oxidative ageing in barrel (and here it’s kept a lot longer before bottling). Deep gold, clear and bright. This offers intriguing fumes; dates, cooked autumnal fruit, a hint of sherry-like oxidation - a little like old Cognac. Dried fruit flavours dominate, with accompanying subtleties, including coffee and caramelised oranges. Juicy, stimulating, and with a lingering finish, this makes a wonderful partner to hard cheese, dried fruit and nuts. Now-2023
