Ventoux Rouge, “Epicure”
The classic red wine of Valcombe is a blend of Grenache Noir (60%), Carignan (20%), Syrah (10%) and Cinsault (10%). However, these are general guidelines and the blend of each vintage’s ultimate cuvée can vary to a large or small degree depending on that year’s growing conditions. The grapes are destemmed, then are fermented in temperature-controlled cement tanks. After the initial racking the wine ages in a combination of cement tanks and larger barrels (foudres and demi-muids). Certified organic.
