80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, 21 days maceration, 12 months in foudres for Grenache, 12 months in barrique for Syrah and Mourvedre

Red
2020 Domaine de Fondrèche Ventoux Divergente France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Ventoux
100% Syrah, 12 months in foudres
The wine is really reductive in the nose, holds all the fruit in the back, earthy
Palate smooth, ripe black fruit, smoky, medium body, a bit drying but not really aggressive tannins, medium to high acidity, reductive, medium finish
This one needs either hours of decanting or years to settle down, but probably both

Ethereal in teh nose, floral, there is ripeness of fruit, black fruit, prunes, black cherry, a touch smoke.
The palate shows great smooth purity, black fruit, cherry, currant, berry again, chocolate and a bit of smoke, smooth juicy tannins, nice acidity, medium finish
Really young at this point, seductive even in such age.
With time in the glass, you also get some nice caramel notes. Gorgeous

Popped and pour after drinking all the other wines, to see this wine with a bit of age in it
The wine shows density, obviously needs time to open up but straightforward . Its all about meaty, bacon, smoke and toast. The fruit is more on the red fruit side, dried red fruit, currannt, the oak feels more upfront but drier, earthy
Palate showing purity, elegance, the same flavor profile on the nose, medium tannins, nutty, almond, bacon again, peppery, dried herbs, a touch drying tannins, medium to long finish
Beautiful evolution
