Domaine de Fondrèche Persia Rouge 2018 is drawn from Fondrèche's finest terroir, a heady concoction crafted predominantly from Syrah, with plenty of development potential in bottle to build further complexity and structure.

Sébastien Vincenti and Nanou Barthélemy's Domaine de Fondrèche is widely recognised as one of the very best producers in the Ventoux appellation. What is more, their fine red and white wines remain exceptional value, despite the ever increasing fame and demand.

Winemaker Sebastien Vincenti loves his terroir and believes that his vines are stronger when treated naturally, including 100% organic manure, no chemical herbicides, and complimentary planting between rows to prevent erosion, promote microbial life and aerate the soil.

"...the 2018 Ventoux Persia is a terrific Syrah that offers loads of dark fruits, smoked earth, pepper, and violet aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied and concentrated, with ripe tannins, it has notable purity of fruit as well as good acidity that keeps it fresh and lively." Jeb Dunnuck

Intensely spicy black fruits and violet with characteristic smoky/salty minerality, and aromatic notes of coffee, cypress, sarriette (savory) and lavender. Elegant on the front and centre palate, freshly balanced and well-concentrated with velvety and spicy tannins, good mineral depth, followed by a lightly macerated development with fine mineral purity and freshness; aromatic and intense in the long finish.

"This reference point estate in Ventoux continues to make a bevy of brilliant wines." Jeb Dunnuck
