93 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Checking in as 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvedre, from vines planted in 1936, the 2012 Cotes du Ventoux II Etait Une Fois had the Grenache brought up in a single foudre and a single concrete egg, and the Mourvedre and Syrah in new barrels. There's a tiny 700 cases out there, and 2012 is Sebastien's favorite vintage as every cuvee is unique for its elegance. Offering beautiful notes of spiced cherries, flowers and wild strawberries, with loads of Grenache charm, this full-bodied elegant and seamless 2012 is impeccably balanced, has a great mid-palate and no shortage of length. In short, it's a killer Grenache from the Ventoux to enjoy over the coming 5-6 years.
"The Domaine de FondrÃ¨che estate is situated at the foot of Mont Ventoux, the famous mountain in the Vaucluse department of the South of France, and covers a surface area of 38 hectares. For over twenty years the vineyard has been tended using natural methods to create a harmony between the vines, the earth, and the surrounding environment, and to produce wines that reflect the local terroir. The yield of each varietal is reasoned, no chemical weed killers are used, and the earth is worked mechanically to strengthen the natural defences of the vines, encouraging the roots to burrow deeper and thereby protecting the vines from bad weather. FondrÃ¨cheis a unique place, with a special terroir and climate due to the influence of Mont Ventoux which brings currents of cold air and leads to big differences in temperature between day and night." -Importer
