Fondreche's Divergente is absolutely sensational - reminiscent of a top flight Hermitage in all but price, and are delighted to have secured a small allocation of this new, very limited production cuvée from the superstar estate of the southern Rhône.
Crafted from very rare old vine Syrah planted in 1961, the Divergente is Syrah at a level that winemaker Sebastien Vincenti has never seen before, and that is saying something from one of the World’s best winemakers.
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 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.
