Côtes du Ventoux Wine

Cotes de Ventoux is an appellation in the southeast of the Southern Rhone. It takes its name from Mount Ventoux, which has a cooling effect in the region’s generally Mediterranean climate. Most of the wines are red and made from Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsaut; Carignan is limited by law to only 30% of the blend. A little white wine is made from Clairette, Bourboulenc, and Grenache Blanc. The wines are often lighter than Cotes du Rhone.

  • Cuvee de 3 Messes Basses Blanc Rhone Valley France 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Opened this nice, inexpensive Rhone white for a little apertif prior to heading to my 35 year service award dinner later this evening. Fairly simple with a nice floral nose, a bit fruit forward on the tongue with lemon, a touch of green melon, decent acidity and a medium finish which has a little cooking spice thing on the back of the throat. T... Read More

  • "Did I destroy the wine by putting it in the fridge after it had been opened and sat in a warm car for several hours?"On the contrary, you probably did it a favor, although you should have put it in the fridge immediately after opening, rather than a few hours later. The vacuum pump didn't do anything but the cold can help slow down some of the ... Read More

  • Domaine Vindemio Cotes du Ventoux Regain 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Really good QPR on this southern Rhone blend of Grenache and Syrah. Fairly fruit forward with red and black cherry, raspberry and a touch of cranberry. There's nice acidity to go with light tannins and a medium finish. Read More

  • Chateau Pesquie Terrasses Ventoux 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A touch leafy on the nose then filling with dark raspberry/blackberry aromas along with lovely spicy, herbal base notes and a touch of licorice. Showing a hint of flesh on entry, this fills out gently in the mouth with soft tannins and good supporting acidity supporting clear and fresh red currant and blackberry flavors. Theres a little inheren... Read More

  • 2001 Cotes du Ventoux was a tremendous deal..! Under $8 it's a fine red dinner wine. Full bodied without doubt with a warm finish, serve coolish & decant for a smoother flavor & let the syrah come out. Everyone enjoyed this wine, & were awed by the cost.. Reportedly will keep 5 years yet, so pick up a few IF you still can... I only have 1 bo...
