2007 Domaine de Fondrèche "Persia" Côtes du Ventoux

SKU #1044560

91 points Robert Parker. "The 100% Syrah cuvee, the 2007 Persia (red) exhibits wonderful bacon fat, roasted meat, smoked herbs, incense, and plenty of blackberry and cassis fruit. Dense, chewy, full-bodied, but lush, with silky tannins and good acidity, this brilliant wine should drink well for 5-6 years as well. Both of these wines actually showed even better this year than they did last year." (10/09) 14.5% abv

I poured this wine at our last Rhone tasting and it was stunning. Quite surprising for the customers that have heard of Ventoux but not of this producer. It is basically an elegant Syrah, more reminiscente of the northern Rhone than Ventoux. The 10% Mourvedre lends a great touch of spiciness, and all that with a nice frame of fruit and coffee beans. Very elegant indeed.

Rhone Blends



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
