2015 Les Vignerons de Fontès "Prieuré St-Hippolyte" Languedoc Rouge (Previously $10)

SKU #1309242

Les Vignerons de Fontes is the cooperative winemaking facility in the hills outside the village of Pezenas in the Languedoc. Oenologist Corinne Pastourel oversees the project that has a host of growers spread throughout the region terroirs that include schist, basalt, limestone and clay. Thirty of these growers formed the cooperative in the 1930s and now their numbers surpass 200. K&L co-founder, Clyde Beffa, met Corinne years ago and forged the relationship that would bring us some of our most popular value wines coming from the south of France. The Rouge, which has been a favorite in our Best Buy Club over the years, is a blend of Syrah and Grenache that has been destemmed and fermented in concrete and stainless steel tanks. It has ample black fruit and supple tannins reflecting the beauty and accessibility of the 2015 vintage. This charming red is well suited for any number of grilled meats during the warm weather months and stews and braises during the cool ones.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
