The Fontan family are able to trace their roots in Gascony back over a century. In 1907 the grandparents of Nadège and Sylvain moved to Maubet Farm in Noulens in the heart of the Armagnac. Given to the cultivation of grape vines, maize, cereals, and cattle, the wine domaine wasn’t established until the 1980’s. Today Maison Fontan produces a range of characterful Armagnacs and Côtes de Gascogne wines. 

The cépage for the Maubet Rouge is composed of 60% Tannat and 40% Merlot. In the cellar the grapes were destalked and put into vats for 5 days of skin maceration. During the temperature controlled fermentation pump-overs and racking were used for gentle extraction. Tasted daily by the winemaking team, the wine was kept in vats until bottling.

The color of the Maubet Rouge is bright ruby red with medium depth. On the nose ripe aromas of red plum, blackberry and cherry pie filling are met by hints of sweet baking spice. The medium bodied palate is filled out with structured tannins and mouth filling blackfruit flavors. Additionally there are hints of black pepper and capsicum. The finish is juicy and spicy. This wine goes well with Cantal, one of oldest types of cheese in France. You can also consider serving it with classic Entrecôte à la Bordelaise.
