The 2020 Persia Blanc is still youthful and vibrant, with lots of lemon, honeyed citrus, flowers, and sappy herb-like aromas and flavors. Much more up-front and fruit-driven than the 2019 today, it's medium-bodied and has bright, juicy acidity, terrific overall balance, and a great finish, while picking up an undeniable chalky minerality with time in the glass. This is another remarkable white from this estate. Compared to the richer yet slightly more closed 2019, the 2020 is more up-front and juicy and shows the fresher style of the vintage, while leaning more on its fruit. It should keep nicely for 5-6 years, if not longer.

One of the consistently superb estates in the Cotes du Ventoux, Domaine de Fondreche offers very high quality and reasonable prices. The creation of Sebastian Vincenti and Manou Barthelemy, these wines are bursting with fruit and have loads of minerality and aromatics. They are beautiful efforts representing the best of what a young generation of French producers can do. The estate is just under 100 acres in size and is now 100% biodynamically farmed.
