La Pierre du Diable Ventoux 2020

This Ventoux is a delicious blend of Grenache and Syrah from the Southern Rhone.  Bold aromas of cherries, earth, and violets lead into copious fruit on a medium body with robust, velvety tannins. 

The wine takes its name from a local legend dating back to the 9th century: the Devil pushed a rock to destroy a chapel built by King Charlemagne and dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The “Devil’s Stone” was stopped by Mary. Since that time, it still overlooks the small Chapel and one can see three claw marks left by the devil on the rock.

We purchased this wine at a terrific deal (it would normally be $19 a bottle), and over-delivers at its price. This wine proves versatile with a range of foods from game or lamb to ratatouille and pizza.
