Domaine de Boissan Ventoux 2019
Domaine de Boissan is located in the Sablet commune of the Rhône Valley and has been passed down through five generations of winemakers. Christian Bonfils, with support from his wife Cathy (formerly of Pommard), now guides the nearly 50 hectares of vines here with a wise and restrained eye. Farming practices remain conscientious of the impact on the earth, with only organic fertilizer added to the soil and the grapes being harvested by hand. Christian prefers to make his wines in a more traditional style leading to a balance between earth and fruit notes. Made from 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, this wine has a lively, spicy bouquet full of wild berries and redcurrants.
