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.

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.


"The Cuvée Persia is mostly Syrah (with a splash of Mourvèdre), and if there's a Syrah from the south that will stand up to a top Hermitage, this is it."

"Lucid nose includes herbs with its blue fruit. Stylish and deep, a genuine and notably long Ventoux." Decanter magazine

"...a deep, dark and glossy wine with a blue-black fruit quality of damson plum, blueberry and a delightfully aromatic spice and floral top-note. It hints at a chocolaty depth, and that follows through to the palate, where firm but ripe and creamy tannins support that dense and dark fruit, fleshy and ripe, but finishing dry with excellent acidity leading to a savoury finish."
