Domaine du Bon Remède

Ventoux

Situated at the foot of Mont Ventoux in the Southern Rhône, the pretty little village of Mazan with its Provençale houses and busy cafes is the home of vignerons Fréderic and Lucile Delay.  Having seen the potential of their vineyard 10 years ago we have been visiting them regularly ever since, watching and waiting as the quality has gradually developed.  Now the time is right for a purchase! Their wines have started to receive accolades in the press and to win awards.  So this Spring when we visited them again we were full of anticipation when we tasted the new vintages.  Our patience was rewarded and we were bowled over by the quality and value-for-money of their Whites and Rosé!

Narcisse des Poetes 2011                                                                                                                                                                                       £5.95 AOC Ventoux Blanc                                                                                                                                                                                                        This is made from a blend of Clairette and Roussanne, which is fermented at a carefully controlled low temperature to preserve the fruit flavours.  It has a delicate bouquet of white flowers, while on the palate the Clairette bestows a lovely soft mouthfeel, with juicy flavours of white peach and hints of fennel and aniseed, finishing with fresh acidity.
