Overview

Remarkably consistent in even the most challenging vintages, Les Terrasses Rouge benefits from being sourced from vineyards scattered around the foothills of Mont Ventoux. These protected microclimates are warm during the day and cool at night. Due to their elevation, these sites are protected from stray summer storms that can devastate other parts of the Rhône valley. The limestone-rich soils, where Syrah (~40%) does particularly well, and where the Grenache (~60%) is slower to ripen due to the moderating influence of Mt Ventoux, all make for a bright, lively wine with enticing red fruit flavors and aromas of garrigue – thyme and rosemary.
