2012 Domaine de Fondreche "L'Instant" Ventoux Rosé
Importer Robert Kacher Selections notes: "Domaine Fondrèche is situated on the picturesque foothills of Mount Ventoux in the village of Mazan. Young winemaker Sébastien Vincenti, a protégé of André Brunel, is without a doubt the leader in quality in this southern Rhone appellation. The 35 ha of vineyards at Fondrèche are cropped to produce nearly half the yields of his neighbors, making Sébastien's wines deeply textured and intensely fruited. Although well known for his deliciously concentrated red wines, the best-kept secret here just may be the Rosé. Made from three grapes, it is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Cinsault. The 2012 l'Instant Rosé has beautiful pink color, lovely aromatics, and fully dry palate. Serve well chilled! 12% abv."
