about this product
La Font du Vent Confidentia is a flagship blend of 80% Syrah (Shiraz) and 20% Grenache that’s well above normal Côtes du Rhône standard. It’s from 25 to 40 year old vines and it’s aged in old oak.
Winemaker cousins Bertrand and Guillaume Gonnet of La Font du Vent (literally: fount, or source, of the wind), are young and well-travelled, having worked in Bordeaux, Burgundy, Australia, New Zealand and the U.S.
In 2006 they took over the 20ha family estate at Signargues, on the western side of the Rhône in the southernmost part of the region.
Signargues (pronounced seen-yarg) gained appellation status, for its red wines only, in 2005, defining them as significantly above standard Côtes du Rhône in quality.
