It’s also the name of lieu-dit, where many of their vines are planted. Font du Loup Chateau Font du Loup came into being when it was purchased by the Charles Melia family in 1942.
Chateau Font du Loup Le Puy-Roland is made from 100%, old vine Grenache that is completely destemmed. The grapes from only one, specific parcel of vines. The wine is aged for up to 18 months in vats, tanks and foudres before bottling.
Full-bodied and extremely round in the mouth, it offers copious amounts of red raspberry and cherry fruit underscored by just a hint of garrigue and some silky tannins on the finish. Robert Parker.
