Domaine de Montbuisson
A wine for every dish: this could be the creed of Bernadette and Benoit Fettweis, who produce a fine assortment of red and white wines with a Côtes de Thongue PGI (Protected Geographical Indication), along with a rosé made using the saignée method. This Verviers couple juggle with blends and initial their coloured labels with large letters, as if traced by the tip of a sword: from the A of Ambre Satine to the P of Philippine, including the G of Grains Noirs, to name but some of their wines. The Domaine de Montbuisson covers 25 unbroken hectares, 12 of which are planted with vines, and produces between 15,000 and 20,000 bottles a year.
The Popsss favourite in the Domaine de Montbuisson range!
The grapes were harvested fairly early owing to the rainy climate. The alcohol content is lower than that of previous vintages (just 12°C) and the wine is consequently lighter. The yield is limited to 30 hl/ha on 80-year-old vines, the seeds are selected by hand. The wine is made and matured in tanks.
Rubis-coloured robe of medium intensity.
Sur le fruit, with hints of spice.
Ripe cherry and plum, offset by a hint of pepper, lend it great elegance in the mouth.
Sole meunière or, in summer, tapas or a grill.
