What We Say
An open nose with notes of black fruit and a hint of menthol. On the palate, aromas of stewed blackcurrants are accompanied by mellow tannins.
What They Say
Le Poète pays tribute to the poet of the family, Roger Combe, who represents the third generation of winemakers at the Domaine La Fourmone. This subtle, elegant and fine wine is the result of a rigorous blending. The wine is fermented in stainless still tanks for three weeks, then, it is matured in bottles for two years. The 30 year-old grapevines of Grenache and Syrah give it a personality of its own.
About The Producer Domaine la Fourmone
While the Fourmont family founded what was initially a farmhouse, the estate has been managed since 1910 by the Combe family. The wines of the Domaine flourish between two prestigious and internationally renowned appellations, Vacqueyras and Gigondas, their vineyard stretches across 37 hectares including 8 grape varieties. They have been practicing organic farming since 2019, aiming to sustain soil life without synthetic pesticides and herbicides, as the family believes in the balance and coherence of this agriculture system.
