About the winery

Château de Fontenille is located very near the Abbey of La Sauve Majeure on gravel terroirs bathed in a generous sun.

In the IVth century when the poet Ausone was praising the wines of the region, perched a villa at the locality called ”Font e Melha” of which some ruins still remain today.

We can find other traces in the XVth century in the archives of the Abbey of La Sauve Majeure on which Fontenille will depend until the XVIIth century.

Consumer Reviews - Château de Fontenille - Clairet 2009


Julien Doornaert  Vinostarter - from 1 to 20 reviews    United States
***** Excellent 
When you hesitate, go for a Clairet!
Sometimes, you just don't know what to offer to your guests for dinner... Usually, fish (among others) appeals white wine but then again, some people don't like white or just prefer red wine. Well, the Clairet of Fontenille stands right in the middle. I believe it will please almost everybody. Red wine lovers will appreciate the Clairet's freshness and white wine lovers will enjoy its lightness and joyful color. Both will enjoy the uniqueness of its taste.
I discovered the Clairet of Fontenille two years ago and I fell in love with it. When I tried other Clairets almost a year later, I was pretty disappointed. I guess that means one thing, 'when you find something you love, why wasting your time looking for something else?' #salad #fresh #fish #appetizer #cheese #outdoor
