2018 Domaine de Fondrèche Ventoux Rosé

SKU #1402287

According to the importer, "Domaine de Fondrèche estate is situated at the foot of Mont Ventoux, the famous mountain in the Vaucluse department of the South of France, and covers a surface area of 38 hectares. For over twenty years the vineyard has been tended using natural methods to create a harmony between the vines, the earth, and the surrounding environment, and to produce wines that reflect the local terroir. The yield of each varietal is reasoned, no chemical weed killers are used, and the earth is worked mechanically to strengthen the natural defences of the vines, encouraging the roots to burrow deeper and thereby protecting the vines from bad weather. Fondrècheis a unique place, with a special terroir and climate due to the influence of Mont Ventoux which brings currents of cold air and leads to big differences in temperature between day and night."

The perfect Rose' from south of France, Ventoux! Oh so beautiful, light, floral aromas of lavender and rose pedals with a mild hint of orange zest. white raspberries an honeysuckle in the layers of every sip. It is a light Rose' with a gorgeous personality that makes it exciting and intriguing to consume.

Mont Ventoux, often shrouded in mists, rises like a sleeping giant... wait, that's a tired metaphor. How about this: Mont Ventoux, during the valiant onslaught of determined racers, gasping and climbing and clamoring for purchase during the Tour de France, looks like a sleeping giant attacked by a line of frenzied ants. Better. right? Take heart, this famed ridge, the "Giant of Provence', is also known for growing grapes, mostly reds and a smaller percentage of roses and whites on its southern slopes. Domaine de Fondreche, seeking harmony with the idyllic environment, produces a superb range of low-sulphur, organic wines. The rose, a lovely blend of 50% Cinsault, 30% Syrah and 20% Grenache grown on sandy silty soils, possesses lovely, vibrant fruit inflected by notes of red currants, summer melons and citrus, with crisp acidity that pairs well with Burmese, Thai foods and sushi. And just think, you don't have to scale a sleeping giant to get it!
