Founded in 1950 by Bertrand and Guillaume Gonnet, the Domaine Font du Vent produces elegant and focused Chateauneuf. Organically farmed vines that have been in the family for 4 generations, the 'Cuvee Elegance de Jeanne' is an homage to their grandmother Jeanne. Mostly Grenache with a smattering of other Rhone grapes, this is a rich and opulent wine with big complex aromatics. Black cherries, blackberries, cocoa, licorice and pepper, this is a true Rhone delight.

Wine Advocate

A plot selection from La Crau, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Elegance de Jeanne features wonderfully floral scents of roses and lavender. It's full-bodied and creamy in texture yet nearly weightless, and it carries a firm tannic kick and plenty of peppery-licorice spice on the long finish.
