SKU #1441528 92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2018 Ventoux Domaine is another winner that should be snatched up by savvy readers. A blend of 50% Grenache and 25% each of Syrah and Grenache, brought up in one-third each foudre, barrels, and concrete eggs, it offers a vivid bouquet of violet, ground pepper, bouquet garni, and both red and blue fruits. Medium to full-bodied, rounded, and polished, it has the fruit-forward charm of the vintage yet still packs ample concentration. Drink it over the coming 4-6 years (or more). Drink through 2025+ Inner quote mark (8/2019)

The Ventoux AOC lies just to the east of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, where wine grape quality is favorably affected by the looming presence of Mont Ventoux, which generates cooler nights that contribute to a longer growing season. Composed of organically grown Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre, the Fondreche Rouge testifies to the caring treatment given each parcel during fermentation and aging. With its refined and supple aromas, and round notes of raspberry, black plum, licorice, violets, and wild thyme, this polished Ventoux red would happily share a table with a platter of tangy braised short ribs.
