Domaine de Fontanilles
AOC Faugères
Vin d'Appellation d'Origine Protégée


Fontanilles means "little sources" in Occitan. The vineyard sits astride a fault, which drains water from the Mont Caroux. There are a dozen wellsprings around and also traces of a roman villa, this testifies of an ancient presence.

Steady colour, bright red with a slightly tile-red reflection.
Intense nose very typical for Faugères with notes of dark fruits, leather and spices. The mouth is concentrated and full-bodied with an important tannic mass coated by a nice volume. The product is loyal to the typical Terroir of schists.
Drink within 5 years.

Serving suggestions: Traditional cooking, game bird and cheese with a strong character.
