2016 Domaine Font du Vent 'Les Promesses' Cotes du Rhone

$19.95

Would all Rhône-Swillers, Châteauneuf-Chuggers, and GSM Maniacs kindly come to the white courtesy telephone?

Buckle up, buttercups. We have a barnburner on the Fast Track aisle.

Simply put, in the great 2016 vintage, the Gonnet family of Domaine Font du Vent made one of the most insanely fruit-driven Côtes-du-Rhône wines we have ever tasted, in over 20 years spent sniffing, slurping, and snarfing these southern French products.

The intensity of fruit in this wine is just bonkers. Boysenberry syrup leads the charge, along with crushed red cherries, cocoa, superripe red plums, and a hint of toasted thyme buds and anise. It’s just an immensely satisfying GSM blend, and delivery is included on a 12-bottle case. Just use code RHONEBOMBA at checkout and we’ll throw one on the truck!
