Domaine Font de Courtedune, Courthézon
Caroline Charrier, Domaine Font de Courtedune
Brother and sister, Frédéric and Caroline Charrier run this Domaine, with Frédéric in the vines and Beaune-educated Caroline in the winery. Their vines lie on the Rayas / Courthézon side of Châteauneuf du Pape. Here, sandy soils give naturally elegant, finely textured wines, which Caroline harnesses with her gentle, traditional winemaking approach. There is no destemming or punching down during fermentation (“just a little pumping over of the juice”). This is the fifth vintage we have shipped from this Domaine, whose wines we consistently love for their purity and aromatic complexity.
