VENTOUX – ALTITUDE 500 – Red – 2017
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 500 comes from a selection of homogenous terroirs situated at an altitude of 500m in a south-facing zone known as ‘Saint Nicolas’.
A wine characterised by fruit and finesse with a frank and lively ruby colour. The nose with aromas of red berries is completed by a spicy touch. Notes of nutmeg and berries bring a pleasing acidity. On the palate it is structured, complex, and full-bodied with great freshness and heady and generous length.
