The grapes for this special cuvée hail from some of the highest terraces in the Dentelles de Montmirail. A blend of 70% Grenache (50-year-old vines) and 30% Mourvèdre (75-year-old vines), aged 100% in barrel on fine lees. The "font," or fountain, refers to a picturesque site in the family vineyards so named by grandfather Antonin, the founder of the domaine. Always a cellar favorite—we've opened bottles with 10 and 15 years of age and they're still dynamic and fresh.
"Rich and dense, but rounded and accessible, with gorgeous spice, mesquite and warm ganache aromas backed by fig bread, espresso and licorice snap notes. Muscular but fresh on the finish, with a tangy iron note adding length. Drink now through 2015."
"Opaque purple. Potent dark berry, cherry and plum aromas are underscored by smoky mineral and pungent floral qualities. Sappy, palate-staining dark berry flavors pack serious punch and gain sweetness with air. The finish refuses to let up, with the floral element strongly echoing. This is at 16.7% alcohol right now and Faravel says that "it still has some sugar to eat." Looks to be a big, serious bruiser of a wine. 90-93"
