3 Fonteinen Druif Muscat Bleu (S19/20 #47)5425007818536
Dating back to at least 1883, 3 Fonteinen is an iconic lambic producer with a serious cult following. The name 'three fountains' refers to the hand pumps used to serve the three types of lambic at the inn. The business was almost ruined in 2009 after a faulty thermostat resulted in 80,000 bottles of cooked lambic, many exploding, resulting in huge financial loss. We're thankful that 3 Fonteinen is still here to this day and producing some of the most highly sought after lambic in the world.
For this Druif, we used Muscat Bleu grapes from Wijndomein Hoenshof in Hoepertingen, Haspengouw region, Flanders. Muscat Bleu is a hybrid wine and table grape and has its origins in Switzerland. We macerated the grape must with four different lambics from two different barrels. We let it macerate for five months and blended the grape lambic with another three young lambics prior to bottling. The final fruit intensity is 38.1% of grape must per litre of Druif Muscat Bleu. 100% 3 Fonteinen. RARE. ONE BOTTLE PER PERSON.
