This Clairet is a real curiosity and is made like a light red wine. It combines fruit, freshness, tenderness, without excluding balance and character. Ideal in summer, for the aperitif or with cold lunches and grilled meat. To be drunk within two years after bottling.

Château de Fontenille • Entre-Deux-Mers AOC

Château de Fontenille
Entre-Deux-Mers

An exceptional and particularly aromatic wine. This wine will perfectly accompany seafood and grilled fish, and is also amazing with goat cheese. To be drunk within three years to keep its freshness. But it can also be kept, getting rounder and more balanced in the bottle. A fresh and slightly acid wine which strikingly shows the quality revival of the white wines from the Entre-deux-Mers.
