Estate Notes

Persia is Fondrèche's flagship wine drawn from its finest terroir, a heady concoction crafted predominantly from Syrah, with plenty of development potential in bottle to build further complexity and structure.

Fondrèche’s success is built upon three exceptional parcels of unique terroir farmed using organic methods. The land is winemaker Sebastien Vincenti’s absolute passion and his loving care and attention passes from the vines to every single bottle of this gorgeous wine.

Reviews

"Saturated ruby. Aromas of spice-tinged black and blue fruits display a suave floral quality. Chewy and focused on entry and then fleshier in the middle, offering juicy boysenberry and bitter cherry flavors that spread out nicely on the back half. Rich yet lively, delivering strong finishing punch, dusty tannins and a late suggestion of olive paste." Josh Raynolds

"...this domaine has a unique terroir and produces a bevy of high-quality wines that emphasize purity and freshness, without ever skimping on fruit or texture." Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

Deep aromas displaying both raspberry and black fruits and dense spice, supported by freshness and minerality. Very ample, powerful and long palate, balanced and refined with velvety structure and depth, and aromatic notes of violet, raspberry and blackcurrant and exotic spice.
