2017 Domaine de Fondrèche "Persia" Ventoux Rouge (Previously $25)

SKU #1402289 94 points Jeb Dunnuck

 Leading off the 2017s, the 2017 Ventoux Persia offers a rich yet elegant profile as well as plenty of kirsch and blackberry fruits, ground herbs, smoke, and crushed rock. It's medium to full-bodied, has sweet tannins, and is loaded with Provençal character. It normally sells for a song and is an incredible value.  (8/2019)

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A striking nose of pepper-dusted blueberries leads the way in the 2017 Ventoux Persia, a blend of 90% to 95% Syrah, with the balance Mourvèdre. Full-bodied, ripe, rich and creamy in texture, this is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) examples of this cuvée I've ever tasted, with masses of fruit that should drink well for another 5-8 years after release.

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.
