VENTOUX – ALTITUDE 450 – Red – 2016
From the plain of Carpentras to the slopes of the ‘Giant of Provence’ culminating at over 500m. The most spectacular variations depend on the steepness of the slopes due to the climate differences linked to altitude. It was important to show the qualities of the produce of these terroirs, and that is what we have done with the Altitude range. The cuvée Altitude 450 comes from a selection of homogenous terroirs, situated at an altitude of 450m in a south-facing zone known as ‘Les Qieuches’.
This ruby-coloured wine with flecks of violet is balanced and reveals aromas of undergrowth such as pine and oak. On the palate, minty notes bring freshness and notes of red berries bring a gentle lightness and pleasing sweetness. An airy wine with smooth tannins and a frank and powerful structure on the finish.
