Paleo Erik's notes Serve at 10°C; 12.5% ABV, ready to drink and keep until 2021. Mont Ventoux is a 1,900-meter high peak which separates the Southern Rhone from Provence. On its eastern slope the passionate Sebastien Vincenti and Nanou Barthelemy have certified Domaine de Fondreche’s vineyards organically and operate its cellars using natural processes and concrete eggs to ferment. The cooling conditions from the mountains and Fondreche’s skills make natural, pure and lively wines. A start producer in Ventoux – Jancis Robinson, Master of Wine http://domaineselect.com/producer/domaine-de-fondreche/ Sommelier's Comments Robert Parker 89 points "Sourced from the estate's sand and silt soils, the 2016 Ventoux Rose may be pale in hue but it's no shrinking violet. It pumps out bold aromas of citrus and stone fruit plus hints of red berries. Six months on the lees gives it a rich texture but it never seems heavy, finishing with refreshing acid zip." Vinous 88 pts "Light bright pink. Aromas of fresh red fruits and pungent flowers are complicated by subtle garrigue and mineral nuances. Taut and nervy in the mouth, offering bitter cherry and strawberry flavors that show a vaguely bitter edge. Closes chewy and taut, delivering solid punch and bright, minerally persistence."
