LA FERME JULIEN CTES DU VENTOUX ROUGE 2010 LA FERME JULIEN CÔTES DU VENTOUX ROUGE 2010

Produced by the Perrin brothers of Château de Beaucastel fame, this is a top quality, great value wine from the southern Rhône valley. The wine itself is a fascinating blend of four local varieties and provides a versatile wine that can accompany a wide range of dishes, or can be drunk on its own.



VINEYARD
The southern slopes of the Mont Ventoux (1912 metres/ 5736 feet), 25 km/40 miles to the east of Orange. The vineyards lie around the towns of Mazan, Moimoiron, Villes sur Auzon, Puymeras and Saint-Didier, where the average height above sea level is 300 metres/1000 feet.

This varies according to altitude but consists for the most part of deposits left around the base of the chalky Mont Ventoux by the seas of the Tertiary period. Red Mediterranean soils blend with chalk debris and round stones.

GRAPE VARIETIES
50% Grenache , 20% Syrah, 15% Carignan and 15% Cinsault.

VINIFICATION
The fermentation is adapted to suit each wine, grape variety and producer. Nearly all the grapes are lightly crushed and fermented in cement vats of 150 and 300 hectolitres. The fermentation is classic and extended.

The wine is kept in both vats and large oak barrels for ten months, then bottled in July.

TASTING NOTES
The wine has a deep cherry red colour with a nose of ripe fruit that is rich and spicy. The palate reveals a good solid red wine with pleasant tannins.
