Estate Notes

Fondrèche's new Persia Blanc reflects their new range of wines, which have been revamped on the basis of 20 years worth of studying their terroirs. Made from 100% Roussanne, this wine exudes class, with great complexity from aging on its lees in new foudre and a step up from the esate's entry level white.

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 of the soil.


"A fabulous white that delivers on all accounts is the 2015 Cotes du Ventoux Persia Blanc. Always from 100% Roussanne and aged in a new foudre, it offers killer notes of white flowers, lemon, citrus and crushed rocks, with a touch of lees aromas and flavors, as well as weight on the palate. Vibrant, medium-bodied, fresh and beautifully delineated, it's always made in a more fresh, lively style, yet this vintage has beautiful textural richness."

Concentrated and deep with emerging aromas of apricot, fresh fig, citrus and butter with floral high notes. Beautifully balanced – opulent, deep and fresh with fine mineral base and length, and long lifted aromatic finish.
