‘Contreforts du Delta’ Côtes du Ventoux AC

£9.49

A light to medium organic red from the SE fringes of the southern Rhône, which takes it name from the Mont Ventoux the mountain dominating the region. It’s a nice light garnet colour, with raspberries and fig jam on the nose. The tannins are soft and the wine is supple and quite juicy. An easy refreshing style that’s best drunk young and can even be served cool (though never chilled).

We first met Jacques Frelin In Paris in 1987 and this pioneer of the French organic wine movement has been our most important supplier almost from that moment. Originally from the Vendée region he worked initially with his now ex-wife at Domaine de Clairac, then with Louis Andrieu and Olivier Azan. He now runs the operation single-handedly but with the backing of his old friend Frédéric Lachaux.
Organic vineyards represented – 40 hectares. Organic since 1983.
