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!

This rose is so damn good! Too good - I can easily consume the entire bottle myself. It's succulent and salty, oozing with fresh red berries and the ever-important super energetic acidity. This is dry and delicious and I just can't get enough. If there's one rose to stock up on this year it's this one.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- 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.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- 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.
