About this wine
fons de luc - Rosé
Vignerons depuis 1605: Louis Fabre looks back on a long winemaking tradition. His family has been cultivating vineyards in the Corbières region for centuries. Through a marriage in the middle of the 19th century, the Château de Luc came into the family's possession. It is located on the Via Aquitania, the Roman road connecting the Mediterranean Sea with the Atlantic Ocean.
The grounds of Château de Luc with its ponds and orangery look timeless, but a closer look reveals how much has changed here in recent years. Countless hedges, shrubs and trees have been planted for kilometres, mostly along the edges of the plots, but also as breaks within large vineyards. This has created valuable habitats for flora and fauna. Louis Fabre is as careful in the cellar as he is in the vineyards. For his latest rosé creation, fons de luc, he opted for three traditional varieties, fermented individually and matured in steel tanks. When the time seemed ripe, Louis Fabre began to blend. The cuvée contains mostly Grenache, which is complemented with Cinsault and Syrah – it is a trio that ensures harmony. Louis Fabre calls it fons de luc, alluding to a spring near the Château where Celts once founded the village of Luc.
