90 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The Le Paradou label is a joint venture between the Ventoux's Chateau Pesquie Chaudiere family and importer Eric Solomon. The 2016 Vin de France, which has already been bottled, is 100% Grenache and comes from vines in the Ventoux and the Roussillon's Agly Valley. It was brought up all in concrete tank. Deep ruby colored, with awesome notes of garrigue, pepper, kirsch and dark fruits, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, no hard edges and a great finish. It sells for a song and way over-delivers."
"Le Paradou is a project created by Alexandre and FrÃ©dÃ©ric ChaudiÃ¨re whose
family produce some of the most respected wines in the Ventoux at ChÃ¢teau
PesquiÃ©. Sourced from two sites whose raw materials are quite unique, the
wines carry the name of a centuries-old farmhouse, Le Paradou, belonging
to the ChaudiÃ¨re family. The vines, ranging in age from 40 to 60 years old,
and are cultivated in accordance with the laws of Terra Vitis, an organization
that ensures that properties respect the environment by stressing the benefits
of integrated farming.
The Paradou vineyards are all slightly elevated on rather poor soils in order
to obtain the freshest and most drinkable wines possible. The aspect of the
vineyards is sheltered and none face fully south. The Viognier vineyard is
situated North-East of Montpellier, between NÃ®mes and UzÃ¨s, at the foot of
the Massif des CÃ©vennes, on fairly poor chalky limestone soils at an average
altitude of 150 to 200m which gives a slight mineral taste to the wine. The
Grenache and Cinsault are situated much further West, North of Narbonne,
in the Minervois, at an average altitude of 250m on richer limestone and
clay soils (pebbly terraces which were deposited during the substantial floods
of the Quaternary Period) which makes for powerfully structured but very
balanced wines." - Importer
