Vin beskrivelse
Cuvée Persia er næsten nord-Rhone agtig i stilen. Vinen er da også fremstillet på basis af 90% Syrah og 10% Mourvèdre lagret på nye franske egetræsfade.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (92-94 points):
"The 2016 Ventoux Cuvee Persia, always a Syrah-based cuvée, includes 10% Mourvèdre this year. It's a blockbuster Persia, overflowing with plum and blueberry fruit, yet not heavy or simple. Black olives and espresso beans also make appearances, all buttressed by ripe tannins and a velvety texture. It's supple enough to be approachable now but expect fireworks with a few years of cellaring."

Jeb Dunnuck (93-95 points):
"The Syrah heavy cuvee from Domaine de Fondreche is the 2016 Ventoux Persia and this inky colored barrel sample includes 10% Mourvèdre and is brought up all in oak. It offers incredible purity and elegance as well as terrific notes of crème de cassis, hints of toasty oak, violets and graphite. With medium to full-bodied richness, building, fine tannin, no hard edges and a weightless, seamless style, it’s going to rival the 2007 and 2010 as the top release for the cuvee."
