The red wine Les Vignes de Mon Père from the talented wine maker Hélène Chouvet Coton at Domaine Fontavin, is a juicy, spicy and structured wine from the Côtes du Rhône area in southern France. We have here a blend of the fruity Grenache and dark and spicy Syrah and Mouvédre grapes. The wine has a deep ruby colour with purple reflections and a bouquet of dark plum, herbs and sweet spices. It is fresh and balanced on the palate with fine tannins and wonderful flavours of dark forest fruits, black pepper, cloves and liquorice. The wine is matured for 12 to 15 months in concrete vats, to keep the pure fruity flavours and true character of the grapes. It is quite a versatile wine when it comes to food pairing and goes well with cured meat, lamb, game and mushroom sauces with herbs of Provence. Les Vignes de Mon Père means The Vines of My Father and is a tribute to the wine maker Hélène Chouvet Coton’s father.
The head of the house Domaine Fontavin is Hélène Chouvet, and owns 45 hectares of some of the best vineyards in 8 different municipalities in Rhône, for example Vacqueyras, Gigondas, Beaumes de Venise og Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The estate is managed exclusively by women with Hélène at the helm. All the wines are certified organic. The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted manually. In the cellar additives are forbidden and the wine maker Agathe only uses natural yeast and utilizes sulphites at an absolute minimum. As all chemicals are banned from the estate, all production sites are steam-disinfected every year.
