About This Wine: The vines of Château de Fontenille have flourished on gravel terroirs bathed in generous sun since the 13th century. Hidden among the vineyards was a pilgrimage route to the neighboring Benedictine monastery, Abbaye de la Sauve Majeure, whose monks tended to the vines for hundreds of years. With nearly 42 acres dedicated to Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Gris varieties, the history of this site is alive in the gravel and clay dominated soils that contribute to the purity of the Château de Fontenille Entre Deux Mers.
Light gold in color, teeming with enticing aromas of citrus fruit and white peaches, Château de Fontenille Entre Deux Mers displays wonderful acidity and freshness on the palate coupled with exotic fruit and citrus flavors.
