OVERVIEW

At a hefty 15% alcohol, the heat of the 2020 vintage was not lost on the Ventoux as the grapes ripened quickly and easily and many producers picked in August. Sun loving Grenache though was in its element and this shows in this typically Provencal red bursting with kirsch and garrigue. 

CRITIC REVIEWS

The Paradou offers a deep ruby ​​color, with delicious notes of garrigue, kirsch and black fruits, this beautiful wine seizes the palate. It's a beautiful symphony. 90 Points Jeb Dunnock

FOOD PAIRING INSPIRATION

We paired this wine with a Hungarian goulash and melding of flavours was just delicious. A lamb tagine will also pair well.

VINTAGE AND WINEMAKING

The 2020 vintage benefitted from a lot of early rainfall which allowed the grapes to ripen despite the extreme heat of the later part of the vintage. 

The grapes are destemmed and placed in concrete and stainless steel vats for 10 to 15 days. No oak or barrel aging. Bottled by Famille Chaudière.
