Cotes de Ventoux Il Etait Une Fois, Domaine de Fondreche 2017

Tasting Notes

Awesome notes of kirsch, camphor, graphite, and crushed flowers as well as plenty of savory minerality emerge from the 2017 Ventoux Il Etait Une Fois, a seamless, medium to full-bodied wine that makes the most of the vintage. This cuvée is always Grenache-dominated (there's 10% each of Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Carignan, brought up all in foudre), and I suspect it will keep for 10-15 years.
