Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"Two laterelease 2007s that have just hit the market are brilliant wines, among the best I have ever tasted from the coolclimate, highelevation vineyard of Domaine de Fondreche. The 100% Syrah cuvee, the 2007 Persia (red) exhibits wonderful bacon fat, roasted meat, smoked herbs, incense, and plenty of blackberry and cassis fruit. Dense, chewy, fullbodied, but lush, with silky tannins and good acidity, this brilliant wine should drink well for 56 years as well. Both of these wines actually showed even better this year than they did last year. One of the consistently superb estates in the Cotes du Ventoux, Domaine de Fondreche offers very high quality and reasonable prices. The creation of Sebastian Vincenti and Manou Barthelemy, these wines are bursting with fruit and have loads of minerality and aromatics. They are beautiful efforts representing the best of what a young generation of French producers can do. The estate is just under 100 acres in size and is now 100% biodynamically farmed. As Sebastian Vincenti told me, 2008 was a very strong vintage for the whites but presented many challenges with the reds"". Wine Advocate # 185, Drink: 2009 2015 , Oct 2009"
