Red fruit, black raspberry, crushed rocks and plum on the nose. On the palate this wine is dry and juicy, with flavors of black and red fruit, licorice root, and hints of spice.

WINE INFORMATION

Le Paradou is a project created by Alexandre and Frédéric Chaudière whose family produces some of the most respected wines in the Ventoux at Château Pesquié.  Paradou refers to the old watermills that once dotted the landscape in Provence. Grapes are sourced from younger vines (10-60 years old) in the Rhone Valley from producers that follow the Terra Vitis guidelines for sustainable farming.

The vines are grown on clay limestone and sand slopes at an altitude of 200-300 meters.  The Chaudière brothers seek to capture the higher-elevation style of Cinsault with Le Paradou:  more aromatic and refreshing style.

Grapes are hand harvested, destemmed and fermented and aged for five months in concrete to preserve its aromatic charms and crunchy fruit flavors.
