Ventoux bottle

Located in the south-facing slopes of Mont Ventoux in the Vaucluse, which rises to 6,272 feet covering almost 16,556 acres.
Since earliest classical times, vines have been grown in Ventoux. At Mazan, archaeological digs have discovered a potter’s workshop dating from the 1st century BC, which manufactured the earliest amphorae known to have been produced in France.

Ripe, pristine aromas of black cherry and blackberry introduce this plump, openknit wine. It’s approachably fruity and juicy, framed by soft, feathery tannins and yielding acidity. Hints of dried herb and earth lend savory complexity. It’s ready to drink now, but could hold well though 2024. Best Buy.

  • Palate

    A well-built red wine with pleasing tannins. Smooth yet chewy, there is nice length providing lasting aromas on the nose.
