Enough can’t be said of the quality coming from Sebastien Vincenti’s and Nanou Barthelemy’s estate in the Ventoux, which is located on a limestone plateau on the eastern side of the region. These are deep, rich, concentrated wines that offer loads of personality. - Jeb Dunnuck, LE MILLÉSIME… The 2016s from the Southern Rhone (Part 1), 8/28/2018
Wine maker notes
”Persia” is a wine made from 30-40 year-old Syrah vines with a splash of Mourvedre. The wine is aged completely in barrels, varying from 300 liters to 228 liters. Persia requires 2-3 years aging from its release and can be kept for more than a decade. The wine is inky and displays brawny black fruit and earth with tremendous depth, complexity and length. Only about 800 cases are ever made.
Anyone doubting world class wines are coming from this appellation owe it to themselves to try these wines. -Jeb Dunnuck 10/17
