Description

Tasted from tank, the 2017 Ventoux Rouge is a promising blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre, with the Mourvèdre the only component that aged in barrel. Mixed cherries, spice and peppery notes come together on the medium to full-bodied palate. It's rich and velvety in texture, with a long, concentrated finish.

Score: (90-92) points -- Joe Czerwinski, Robertparker.com, Oct 2018

The affable Sebastien Vicenti continues to turn out some of Ventoux's most exciting wines at Domaine de Fondreche. The producer is such a consistent performer that it's sometimes hard to remember Vicenti's been on the estate only since 1995. The property now totals 40 hectares, with 23 devoted to red (clay and limestone soils), seven to white (limestone soils), and ten to rosé (sandy soils). Most of the various cuvées are aged in a variety of containers, from foudres (he swears by Austrian cooper Stockinger) to concrete eggs and barriques. All of the fermentations here are performed without adding sulfur. "I find more purity and finesse," he said. Over the 20-plus years he's managed the property, he said he's evolved his grape growing and winemaking. "I'm focused on acidity and freshness more than alcohol."
