2003 Domaine de Fondreche Côtes du Ventoux Fayard

2003 “Domaine de Fondreche” Côtes du Ventoux Fayard – France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Côtes du Ventoux (2/12/2005)
Rather closed nose with a hint of strawberries, violets and liquorice. The palate is much nicer, with sweetish jammy fruit, a nice acidity, and a hint of kirsch. Somewhat one dimensional, but nice to drink in the near term. (88 pts.)
