After her father left for Morocco to pursue a new challenge, Anne-Charlotte Mélia took control of the vineyard where
she is exploring natural techniques, along with undertaking a complete renovation of the cellar. The future looks bright
for her, especially due to her desire to utilise the ancient vines contained with her parcels. The vineyard of Font du Loup (Fountain of the Wolf) is located on the north side of the famous plateau, La Crau. The two lieux-dits, “La Font du Loup” and “La Crau” are in the commune of Courthézon. La Crau is divided between two communes, Courthézon and
Bedarrides, but all of Anne-Charlotte’s plots are in the northern most part of Courthézon. The Font du Loup area is
altogether different in soil, given that it is nearly pure sand, furthermore it is also a north facing and one of the highest
altitudes within Châteauneuf-du-Pape, thus contributing to it being one of the coolest climates in the appellation.
Grape Variety: Grenache
