Domaine de Fondreche Ventoux Blanc 2017
30% each of Roussanne, Clairette, and Grenache Blanc, plus 10% Rolle, spending 6 months on the lees. The fruit comes from Ventoux, not far from Châteauneuf-du-Pape – in blind tastings at the shop, this often beats its more famous neighbor. There’s a light creaminess on the palate, giving the wine texture and body, lifted by lively acidity, chewy stone fruits, a waxy mouthfeel, good grip, and gentle spices. Pair this with a versatile range of foods.
