Maker: C. Peysson & Son, Gigondas, France
Grapes: 70% Grenache, 30% Syrah/Shiraz
Region: Ventoux AOC, Vaucluse, Rhone Valley, France.
Appearance: Deep plum.
Nose: A bit of oak, lightly sweet and grapey. Pluot plums, black raspberries.
On the palate: Semi-dry. Easy going, sweet and mild upon entrance, but turns chewy. Strawberries, Black raspberries, blueberries, plums, then oak and leather.
Finish: Fruity and woody. Faintly lingers for a long while, but who wants to let it? Pour yourself another glass quick!
Parting Words: Domaine de Font-Sane Vielles Vignes is an easy drinking, but fairly complex red Rhone. Fruity but tannic and assertive. It is very food friendly. I would almost say it tastes even better with food. And it’s cheap to boot. This was a supermarket wine guy recommendation, and I must say I will be asking for another recommendation from that guy very soon.. Domaine de Font-Sane Vielles Vignes Ventoux earns a recommendation.
