Yves Laboucarié’s family has been making wine here since the seventeenth century and today the estate is led by Bruno (Yves’s son). However, the first vineyards at Domaine de Fontsainte, were planted by the Romans. The original domaine was built around a thermal spring, named Saint Siméon; hence Fontsainte - the saint’s fount. Located in one of the sunniest area in the appellation of Corbières, the vineyards surround the hamlet of Boutenac in the area known as “The Golden Crescent.” Corbières Rouge is 60% Carignan, 30% Grenache Noir, 10% Syrah.
