Tasting notes Bon Remede Les Vignes Rousses
Full, powerful red wine from the southern French Ventoux. Made from carignan, grenache and syrah from more than 50 years old sticks and matured in wooden barrels made of French oak. Fits perfectly with rich (meat) dishes.
Mont Ventoux is certainly one of the most famous high mountains in France, thanks to epic cycling stages in the Tour de France. The 2000 meter high mountain, however, has also given its name to the surrounding wine region. A little bit of white is made, but it is pre-eminently a region for red wine and to a lesser extent rosé.
Domaine du Bon Remède is located at the foot of the mountain, in the village of Mazan. Frédéric and Lucile Delay represent the third generation of the family business. Together they cultivate 28 hectares of vineyards. Most of the sticks are over 50 years old. This gives the wines a nice taste concentration.
This certainly also applies to Les Vignes Rousses, one of the more luxurious wines of the domain. This powerful, spicy red rhône is made from carignan and grenache noir. The carignan also comes from the oldest parcels that deliver superior quality grapes. The Vignes Rousses ripens in French oak for another 18 months for extra round-hours.
Les Vignes Rousses, so called because the leaves of the carignan vines turn red in autumn, is a rich, generous wine. It is bursting with sultry, ripe fruit, supplemented with spices and cocoa. The wood aging gives something toast and vanilla in smell and taste. This is an impressive wine for heavy food, or for the fireplace.
