Ventoux, Martinelle 2018


Ventoux is a large wine region in the far southeast of the southern Rhône, on the border with Provence. The wines made in the Ventoux appellation are very similar to those of the Côtes du Rhône and share much the same combination of grape varieties. Grown in mostly clay-marl and limestone, the intense southern French sunshine that covers the south- and west-facing slopes of Ventoux helps the grapes to achieve a good level of phenolic ripeness.

Ventoux Martinelle achieves elegance from a balanced blend of the area’s major grapes of Grenache and Syrah with the minor ones including Cinsault and Carignan.
