2019 DOMAINE DE FONDRECHE Ventoux Blanc 'Persia' 75cl (Rhone Valley, France)
Style - Rich
Grapes - 100% Roussanne
Tasting - Reductive, smoky tones give way to a honeysuckle, apricot, fig and toast inflected palate that, despite its power, retains a crisp edge. This is really high-class wine which deserves a decant and not being too cold to show at its best.
FYI: Despite our best efforts we cannot find any link between Persia - the ancient middle-eastern kingdom - and this wine.
