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.

    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...
