About This Wine:
Vaison la Romaine is a village in the Northern Vaucluse, and is home to a world-famous weekly market for foods and dry goods. If you’ve read any of Patricia Wells’s Provençal cookbooks, you’ve seen pictures of Vaison with its Roman ruins, ancient (and still used) Roman bridge, and breathtaking stone houses hanging on a cliff by the river. Vaison la Romaine’s cooperative winery produces Côtes du Rhône and Côtes du Ventoux wines – the latter named for nearby Mont Ventoux (famous in the U.S. for the Tour de France). While similar in composition to Côtes du Rhônes, Ventoux wines are a bit lighter and brighter tasting. In the past few years, the coop has started producing Côtes du Rhône Villages wines. This means that all the grapes in that particular wine come from villages that have received a higher designation from the French winemaking authorities, and from particular vineyards in those villages. When the village is named, all the grapes come from a single village. Cave la Romaine produces Villages wine from Séguret, a village near Vaison la Romaine, as well as other small villages in the region. It's a ripe, lush wine, not too overwhelming, and a fascinating comparison to other Côtes du Rhône wines around. Its earthiness and fruit pair well with a variety of foods, so many that it's tough to categorize the wine. We think you'll love it -- it may just become your go-to wine!
