Red ChÂteauneuf du Pape
This is the principal cuvee of Domaine Font de Michelle.
The vines used for the elaboration of this cuvee are,
on average, 45 years old.
The blend of grape varieties consists of: 70% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 10% other grape types such as Cinsault, Counoise, Terret or Muscardin.
The fermentation process is traditional.
The wine is matured in large old barrels called “foudres” and smaller-size oak fûts, or casks that are used
for only 2 to 5 wine maturations.
The resulting wine can be left to age for a long time.
