Estate Notes

Fondrèche's premium white wine, the Persia Blanc, reflects their new range of wines, which have been revamped on the basis of 20 years worth of studying their terroirs. Made from 100% Roussanne, this wine exudes class, and a step up from the esate's entry level white, being aged on its lees for 9 months.

Winemaker Sebastien Vincenti loves his terroir and believes that his vines are stronger when treated naturally, including 100% organic manure, no chemical herbicides, and complimentary planting between rows to prevent erosion, promote microbial life and aerate of the soil.


"...racy style...lots of citrus rind, apple, and crushed rock notes in a medium-bodied, lively, vibrant style..."

Discreet oak foudre with fine closed depth and mineral base, very fresh with light spice. Lovely ample palate; fine expression of Roussanne - creamy, balanced and long, with good dimension and finesse.
