Chateau Valcombe Epicure Rouge 2016

Posted on Posted in Articles, Chateau Valcombe, Occasional Thoughts

Just finished a lovely little red from Valcombe that sang beautifully over two days. It is a shame that this estate in the Ventoux is often overlooked as Luc Guénard is cranking out some satisfying wines at very reasonable prices. And, as for purity of expression and total absence of manipulation in the cellar as well as organic growing conditions, this wine meets all the top standards. As this photo shows, unfiltered wines leave that telltale grainy deposit that we love so much at RWM.
