The opinion of the sommelier

It’s hard to imagine by seeing the high and windy Mont Ventoux (Windy Mountain in Provencal) that there are vineyards on its slopes. However, it is the case and the vines there give particularly interesting wines there. Brunely is typical of this appellation with deep peppery and cherry flavours that give an intense and complex wine. 

 

Terroir

Vines on Mont Ventoux benefit from an exceptional biodiversity. Soils are red thanks to a high concentration in iron which keep the warmth given by the Mediterranean climate. Therefore, grapes benefit from all the heat they need in order to perfectly ripen.

lecepage Grape variety

We find an equal proportion of Syrah and Grenache. The first one is the typical grape variety from Northern Rhone Valley and brings freshness and tastes of spices and flowers. The second one is the great variety of Southern Rhone valley and gives the creamy texture and the ripe fruits aromas. Carignan brings some structure and complexity to the whole with flavours of black berries.

lemillesime Vintage

2018 was not an easy vintage in the Rhone Valley. Indeed, the heavy rains of May and the high temperatures for this season allowed rot to thrive. Fortunately, Ventoux is, as it name says, under a lot of wind and its nights are quite cold. Therefore rot was quickly stopped and the wines were great in those kinds of terroir. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

From the 1990’s, Charles Carichon took after his father and never ceased modernising the Family vineyard. Moreover, he bought a lot of new vines in all the neighbouring appellations. Nowadays, he produces wines on almost ten appellations (Chateauneuf du Pape, Lirac, Gigondas…) and his wines benefit from a good reputation among wine connoisseurs.
