Traditional vinification in small tanks. Four week maceration. Aging in 2-3 year old oak barrels for 16 months. No fining, no filtration. "La Font du Jeu" is an old French phrase. "Font" stands for "fontaine", meaning "fountain" and "jeu" means "play". The owners Helene and Frederic Lapeyronie believe that children used to come and play around a fountain near the vineyard.
The nose is filled with blackberry and blackcurrant fruits, licorice and vanillin. Medium-bodied with a solid texture of dark fruit, roasted coffee, and spice flavors. Long finish.
Ratings & Reviews
"The 2015 Font du Jeu Cotes de Castillon offers ample dark fruits, plums, and leafy herbs notes to go with a frontend-loaded, textured profile that’s ready to go. A blend of 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in used barrels, it’s a terrific value and will offer plenty of pleasure over the coming 5-7 years." - Jeb Dunnuck (March 27th 2019)
