From: Southern Rhone, France
Varietals: 80% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache
Tasting Notes: Made of mostly Mourvedre, this beautiful, long-lived Chateauneuf is full of rich dark cherry and blackberry notes, along with a hint of pepper and classic baking spices. It's impressive, age-worthy, and would be an amazing gift to give to any Southern Rhone wine lover.
Pairing: The winery suggests drinking this wine with roasted veal, scallops cooked in a saffron sauce, triple-crème cheese, or bell peppers stuffed with rice and herbs.
"Located at one of the highest points in Châteaneuf-du-Pape, Château Font du Loup, which translates to 'fountain of the wolves', is named after the natural springs in the area where the wolves would come to drink. Font du Loup has been in the Melia family since 1942 and is now run by the extremely charming Anne Charlotte Melia-Bachas with her husband Laurent and the help of consultant Philippe Cambie. Font du Loup has roughly 20 hectares (organically farmed), including holdings in the La Crau and Font du Loup vineyards, and is planted on mostly sandy soil with vines that reach 100 years old. It is located in one of the coolest appellation places with slow ripening of the grapes. The wines are made in an elegant, pure, pretty style and are as warm and inviting as the good Anne-Charlotte and Laurent." –Artisans & Vines
