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.

  • Chateau Unang Ventoux 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in Kent [www.dickenshousewine.co.uk ] for £12.50. I bought it because I had previously had a bottle of their special 'La Gardy ' cuvee a couple of years ago and was impressed although this is a more basic offering. It is a blend of grenache,syrah and cinsault though I do not know in what proportions.I sta... Read More

  • Château Pesquié Quintessence 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The 2009 Quintessence is a fine wine with balanced, structured flavors of sage, eucalyptus and cherry and notes of smoke and spice on the nose. Elegant, smooth and still capable of a few more years in the bottle, this Ventoux is highly recommended - if you can find the vintage. Though somewhat different in style, better value than many Chateau... Read More

  • Cuvee des 3 Messes Basses 2012

    Snoothrank:

    KindredVines offer these TASTING NOTES:Dark garnet in color with purple hues. This wine is an open bouquet combining fruity and peppery aromas which are distinctive of the AOC Ventoux. A well balanced and pleasant wine on the palate with aromas of stewed fruits and hints of cinnamon and clove. Enjoyable fleshy texture and remarkable length. [I a... Read More

  • Nicely done!  BTW, Emark isn't the only one with a few wines on hand from TJ's.  And, if they can sell wine in your state, there are a few that they will have that are available nationwide.  Here's a few recommendations:  That Vielle Ferme that OT recommended is available at Trader Joe's as Ferme Julien.  Same wine.  The rose and the Cotes du Rh...

  • Cuvee de 3 Messes Basses Blanc Rhone Valley France 2014

    Snoothrank:

    There's a bit of green melon on the nose, on the tongue is some lemon pith, a touch of lime sherbet, decent acidity and a medium finish which has a little cooking spice thing on the back of the throat. The 2014 is a blend of 50% Clairette and 50% Grenache Blanc. Still a great QPR for around $14. Read More

  • 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

  • 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...
