Winemaker's Notes:

Chateau de Fontenille Entre Deux Mers Blanc is a simple white, with a lot of lime and celery character. Medium bodied, with a light finish. It is a very aromatic wine, which highlights the characteristics of sauvignon of muscadelle and sauvignon gris.
My Notes:

About Chateau de Fontenille:

Ch√Ęteau de Fontenille is located very near the Abbey of La Sauve Majeure on gravel land bathed in generous sun. In the 4th century when the poet Ausone was praising the wines of the region, there was a villa at the nearby called "Font e Melha" of which some ruins still remain today.

The vineyards cover 42 hectares, 30 of which are red and 12 are white grapes. The soils are clay and limestone with some gravel. The wines are vinified traditionally with controlled tempratures and aged in 50% new oak for the reds.
