Château Fontenelles - Douzens

In the family for five generations, the Domaine de Fontenelles now stretches over 40 hectares of Syrah, black Grenache, Carignan and Mourvèdre on the hinterland of Alaric, in the Corbières AOP and the Aude Côteaux Miramont PGI zone.

Fontenelles is a family history but also the passion of a winemaking couple resolutely turned towards the future.

Guided by their love of the vine and wine, Thierry and his wife Nelly endeavour each day to combine culture of excellence, respect for humans and the environment with quality approach.

An historic land for great wines.

The terroir of the Montagne d’Alaric is distinguished by dominantly clay and limestone soil and the presence of stony terraces.

The character of the terroir expresses itself in red wines with a sublime purple and ruby robe, a powerful and complex nose, combining spicy and floral notes and revealing a harmonious palate on absorbed tannins.

  Specialties

Our vineyard is located in a transitional region between a Mediterranean climate and oceanic influence. The vine experiences a long vegetative cycle, due to the dry, warm and sunny climate. The beneficial influence of the Cers river cleans the vines naturally and allows for reducing pesticide treatment to a minimum.

Moural de Salomon is our prestigious vintage. All our passion and know-how is concentrated in this haute couture wine. The cultivation of the vine, the selection of berries, vat assembly – nothing is left to chance and it is a real work of craftsmanship that our team carries out each year to produce this excellent vintage. The black diamond hue of its robe, dark and sparkling, suggests all the southern opulence of this mythical wine. The nose, finely wooded, is of unmatched complexity and elegance, combining stewed fruit and black olive with notes of laurel. The palate is balanced, aromatic and concentrated with a pleasantly spicy finish. It develops lengthily on silky and absorbed tannins that suggest a most promising future for this character-filled wine. This exceptional wine is the ideal accompaniment for game, juicy meat and prime rib or lamb shanks. Serve carafed at room temperature.
Laying down: 10 years.

Corbières

A.O.P. Corbières

The Corbières is one of the wildest areas of France with one of the lowest population densities. It is picturesque with wine growing areas alternating with garigue and mountainous countryside. It is located mainly in the Aude département and partly in the Pyrénées-Orientales département. The River Aude borders the Corbières to the west and north. To the south is the River Agly and to the east the the Mediterranean Sea. The name Corbières comes from "cor" a pre-Celtic word meaning "rock" and "berre" from the River Berre which runs through Durban. The eastern part of the Corbières with its Etangs, borders the the Mediterranean Sea and is called the Corbières maritimes. It has its own distinctive climate and characteristic vegetation known as thermomediterranean vegetation...


Vin de Pays d’Oc,
Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays d’Oc, Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays means 'country wine' to the French, but to outsiders it can mean New World with a French accent. These are the wines which the French authorities unreservedly allow to be labelled with the grape variety from which they were made. It is difficult to over-estimate the importance of this large and growing category of wines for the future of the French wine trade. The French themselves may have tended to see any Vin de Pays as distinctly inferior to any appellation contrôlée wine, whereas many of their customers abroad see the better Vins de Pays as good-value, user-friendly, sometimes high-quality non-conformist emissaries from the world's most revered wine producer....
