Domaine Font Mars Cabernet Sauvignon


The passion for winegrowing is an old tradition for the de Clock family. Originally from Holland, Jean de Clock settled in Bordeaux in 1679, and subsequently determined to cultivate a vineyard in that region. Soon King Louis the XIV, who recognized the quality of his wines, naturalized him as a French citizen in 1686.  Since 1864, the property has been managed by the ancestors of Camille (Privat, Allié, Guibert, de Vulliod). Jean-Baptiste de Clock, their youngest son, is now the owner and continues both family traditions. The vineyards cover 55 hectares, and the terroir contains three different types of soil: marine rocks in the south, river formation in the west along the river and clay-chalk in the Northeast.

The Cabernet Sauvignon comes from vines planted on the south-facing chalky clay soils. Matured in neutral oak barrels for 6 months prior to bottling. A big nose of black-cherries, spicy, earthy-scented fruit, medium in  body, loads of juicy red berries, and a lush, round, generous finish. It shows really pretty red & black fruits, silky tannins and a fresh & juicy finish.
