The 2010 Cotes du Ventoux Persia a blend of 90% Syrah (from 50-year-old vines) and 10% Mourvedre from the estate-s finest terroir is aged in small barrels and 600-liter demi-muids with at least one year of aging on its lees. Abundant notes of blackberries and cassis interwoven with hints of espresso roast white chocolate and acacia flowers are found in this tightly knit full-bodied impressive 2010. Tasting like a top-flight northern Rhone Hermitage rather than a wine from the Cotes du Ventoux it will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and should keep for 15 years thereafter.

Opaque ruby with a fuchsia rim. Soft and ripe aromas of red cherry cassis and garrigue lift from the glass with underlying aromas of candied raspberry white flower rhubarb and woodspice. Very fresh and fragrant. Flavors... Opaque ruby with a fuchsia rim. Soft and ripe aromas of red cherry cassis and garrigue lift from the glass with underlying aromas of candied raspberry white flower rhubarb and woodspice. Very fresh and fragrant. Flavors of blueberry blackberry and red cherry fill the palate and this tightly wound blend shows its fine-grained structure on the midpalate. Finishes with a tarry graphite-laden edge and some silky tannins that provide good length. The wines of the Côtes du Ventoux and of Fondreche in particular continue to impress. 90% syrah 10% mourvedre. Enjoy 2013-2020
