Domaine Fontchene 'Aupiho' IGP Alpilles Blanc 2021

  • Based near Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Domaine Fontchêne is an exciting new project from René Milan. Working with family vineyards, René has converted his land to organic and biodynamic farming, guided by local natural winemakers like Eloi Dürrbach and Dominique Hauvette.
  • Work in the vineyards is of paramount importance and includes ébourgeonnage in the spring and biodynamic preparations.
  • Fermentation and aging are non-interventionist, with native yeast, sulfur used only at bottling, and limited bâtonnage and racking.
  • René strives to produce authentic wines, where balance and freshness take precedence over concentration and power.

22% Marsanne, 22% Roussanne, 22% Grenache Blanc, 18% Clairette, 16% Chardonnay

Selection massale only for replanting. Biodynamic practices in the vineyard, with emphasis on biodynamic preparations 500 and 501. Stopped cutting the apex growth in 2018. Manual harvest in 15 kg boxes. Whole bunch pressing. Natural settling at approximately 10°C. Alcoholic fermentation in 228-liter barrels, each variety separately, at a temperature between 18°C and 20°C. Aging on the fine lees for 12 months with stirring to bring complexity, weight and fruit.
