Yellow-gold color, the nose is rich in aromas of citrus fruit, tropical fruit, quince and honey, with a touch of vanilla. On the palate, the same aromas appear together with a fatness combining exotic fruit and vanilla: the wine is rich, generous and elegant, with extraordinary length. La Fontaine is often considered to be one of the best Chateauneuf-du-Pape white, and it is by definition a superb gastronomy wine. Best with fish dishes in sauce or foie gras, white meat and delicate cheeses.
"Intensely ripe yellow-apple and stone-fruit flavors have a slightly tropical flair in this rich but pristine, fruity Roussanne. It's full bodied and plush but structured by pleasantly bitter tea tannins and a hint of spicy orange zest." (2016 vintage) 91 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, January 2018
