Fondreche 2020 Persia Ventoux Rouge 750ml
More cassis, violets, flowers, and black pepper notes emerge from the 2020 Ventoux Persia, and it's more lively and elegant on the palate, with high yet integrated acidity and very fine, polished tannins. While the 2019 is a bigger, richer wine, the 2020 is more elegant and finesse-driven. It should benefit from a year in bottle and drink brilliantly through 2030.

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.
