Ventoux Saint Sebastien 2016, 75cl
Set beneath the southern slopes of the famed Mont Ventoux, the Ventoux terroir is located around the town of Mazan; our vineyards are surrounded by arable farmland, forming an oasis of greenery in the heart of Provence. Terroir is a French word that describes all of the aspects of a vineyard that make it unique: the soil, the weather, the climate. The terroir has a direct effect on the character of the wine, which distinguishes it from others.
Comes from the name of the district where grow the vines which will give the vintage. A statue of San Sebastian is still visible in this neighborhood. The cuvée has 6 hectares of vinified grapes for an average production of 296 hectoliters. This wine is mostly made from Grenache with Syrah playing a a supporting role.
A garnet robe greets the eye. Expressive nose, spicy, liquorice with notes of cooked black fruits. Full, structured and spicy mouth. Liquorice finish reminiscent of aniseed. Nice length and freshness at the end of the mouth.
