FONTCREUSE red grape varieties produce in the region of 40,000 bottles of Rosé and 12,000 bottles of Red Wine. The assemblage of FONTCREUSE Rosé Wine is made up of 80% Grenache and 20% Cinsault. The assemblage of Red Wine is comprised of 50% Syrah and 50% Caladoc.

Grenache, slightly oval in shape, is perfectly adapted to the Mediterranean "terroir", is a variety that stands up well to drought. It gives FONTCREUSE Rosé Wines their great character, elegance, fullness and richness.

Cinsault, oval and elongated berries with a sweet and juicy flesh, brings to the Rosé characteristics of ripe red fruit and finesse.

Syrah, cylindrical in shape with little ovoid and compact berries of a black plum, produces intense red juice offering up spicy aromas of red fruit and violets. It delivers a strong tannic structure while remaining silky with good aging potential.

Caladoc, a Grenache and Côt mix of small round black berries, slightly juicy, very fruity, deep in colour, rich in tannins; in a small yield its wine in these assemblage conditions are used to soften the Syrah.
