Impressions: Aromas of fresh blackberries, plum, black cherries, and black currant rest gracefully over subtle notes of menthol and crushed blueberries. The palette is met with flabby acidity that mingles with soft velvety tannins that progresses towards a lengthy finish. A fabulous addition in a Provençal stew or accompanied with chicken with thyme and a variety of hard cheeses.
About The Producer: Domaine Fourmone’s history dates back to 1765, although was a mere farmhouse until the Combe family found and purchased it in 1910. The Domaine is currently being run by the 5th generation of Combe’s and is proudly family run. The estate draws its semantic roots from the word ‘Fromentum’: wheat. Quickly after being purchased the family determined due to the incredible terroir that instead of wheat, they would plant vines of Vacqueyras; this would be the best decision the family could make. Wheat cultivation remains linked to the estates heritage and can be seen in their emblem on each cuvee.
