Taken from the first chapter of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's book The Little Prince, the name of this cuvée translates as What is important, is invisible to the eyes. This organic and biodynamic blend of Grenache and Syrah may look like any other Rhône wines, but it will steal your heart.

It is refined and elusive. The deeply rooted vines bring strength and vigour, the wind ensures a healthy life, and the sun concentrates the aromas. Then, there is the winemaker’s instinct that guide the grapes to maturity, transforming them into a quality wine.

In the glass the colour is deep red with violet reflections. There are aromas of black fruits and red berries. The palate is ample and generous, with notes of blueberry jam, and wild raspberries. The tannins are velvety and smooth.

Pair this with a homemade burger, cooked rare as the French enjoy, with mushrooms and Gruyère cheese.

Christian Gourjon, Château Font Barriele

For four generations the Gourjon family have farmed the terraces of the Rhône. Their wines are a delicate, yet powerful expression of a centuries-old vineyard.
