As shocking as it seems, the 2010 Cotes du Ventoux Cuvee Persia (90/10 Syrah and Mourvedre) reminded me of Jean Louis Chave's Hermitage, from a cooler, granite year. Aged all in new barrels and foudre, it has sensational minerality in its darker fruits, crushed flowers and graphite aromas and flavors. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied, focused, elegant and ultra pure 2010 that has fine tannin, excellent concentration and a big finish. It's a sensational wine. Put this in a brown bag at your next northern Rhone tasting and shock your friends. - Jeb Dunnuck

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
