Domaine de Font-Sane Cotes du Ventoux
This grenache shiraz blend out of the Rhone Valley is amazing value, and would go brilliantly with red meats dishes, strong cheddar cheeses, or even rich pork dishes. It's quite modern in style, with lots of cherry and berry fruits upfront, along with hints of soft spice and earthiness. The palate is fuller-bodied and richly-fruited, with sweet raspberry and cherry flavours, a solid line of tannins, and a spicy, sweet fruit finish.
Red cherry, clear and bright. An earthy spicy nose. The palate has good structure with well-balanced acids and tannins; the fruits are cool plums and cherries with a lovely sweet spicy finish. Very French, very good value.
