Located in the Corbieres AOC, right in the heart of the Languedoc-Rousillon, Domaine de Fontsainte, has been making wine since the seventeenth century. The Fontsainte vineyards surround the hamlet of Boutenac in the area known as “The Golden Crescent.” This swath of land is one of the sunniest in the appellation of Corbières, enjoying south-southeast exposure, and protection from the cold, northeast winds by a large 500-hectare forest. 

The 2021 Corbieres Rouge it's a blend of hand harvested 60% Carignan, 30% Grenache Noir, 10% Syrah. The Grenache and Syrah are de-stemmed by hand; Carignan goes through carbonic maceration. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled vats for 14 days, followed by 6 months of rest before being racked into barrel and finally aging in those barrels for 6 months.
