Domaine de Fondr?che is owned by S?bastien Vincenti who produces organic wines in Ventoux. Fondr?che is one of the best run if not the finest estate in the Ventoux. Shrewd consumers have been stocking up on these wines for a number of years as they represent terrific values. They all exhibit beautifully pure fruit infused with plenty of Provencal character. According to Robert Parker "This is the superstar estate of the C?tes du Ventoux". Sebastien is currently working towards being totally biodynamic. His vineyard of 37 hectares is located on a plateau where the soil, has very good water retention capacities and so gives water to the plant only when it is necessary. Sebastien works organically and is currently in the process of converting the Domaine to being totally biodynamic. Even the sheep manure he uses as fertiliser comes from organically reared sheep. Both in the vineyard and in the cellar everything is carried out according to the lunar calendar.
A blend of 50% Cinsault, 40% Grenache and 10% Syrah, the 2017 Ventoux Terrasses Rose features lovely spice notes of ground cinnamon and clove dusted over strawberry and raspberry fruit. Plump and medium-bodied, this silky wine ends long, with lingering hints of citrus and spice.
