The opinion of the sommelier

Dear subscribers, why don’t you close your eyes for a moment. You’re lying down in fresh grass next to a tree, in front of the Mont Ventoux in southern France, just where Provence begins. Your nose gets fresh aromas of citrus fruits led by a delicate note of lemon. In the mouth, the silky texture is an enchantment. A nice minerality tickles your tongue, and gives a nice mouthfeel and length on the palate. 

 

Terroir

Luberon’s vines have been flourishing in the softness of Mediterranean climate since the Roman Empire. Planted high, in the heart of Verdon natural reserve, vines take advantage of long sunny days and fresh nights which give the wine its refinement and natural elegance. The soil is made from limestone and clay, which gives the wine an acidulous flavour which adds some freshness, quite appreciated in this southern region !

lecepage Grape variety

Roussane, one of the greatest variety used for southern white wine, is mainly used in the Rhône valley and in Provence. It’s not that usual to find it blended with vermentino, another southern white variety, but they fit perfectly together. Vermentinon gives thisk wines with a creamy texture and fruity aromas, roussane brings vegetal flavours, minerality and freshness. The whole results in a very balanced and elegant wine.

lemillesime Vintage

2015 was a great vintage both in Rhône valley and Provence, which is very important considering that Ventoux is part of both winemaking region Warm weather, Mistral protecting vines from diseases and few rains avoiding grapes to be overripe… all the stars were aligned to delight your taste buds ! 2015 Ventoux are already powerful, elegant and their texture make them quite easily recognisable. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

What makes Ventoux unique is the fact it is the only appellation in the area to be more famous for its white wines than for its reds. Leonard Rozen, who bought the wine estate in 2011, very understood this specificity and decided to bet on White wines ; hence, he lead his team to replace parcels previously planted with black varieties by white ones. However, Rozen not only planted new vines, but also grew one of the most famous garden in the region; therefore, your wine was elaborated in perfect weather conditions in a breathtaking scenery !
