Château Valcombe 2009 Epicure Red (Ventoux)
Lush in texture, despite having aged solely in concrete vats prior to bottling. The rich texture and supple tannins support warm, brandied cherry notes. Drink this engaging blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Carignan and 15% Syrah now and over the next couple of years.
Château Valcombe 2010 Epicure White (Ventoux)
This four-variety blend (Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Clairette and Bourboulenc) starts off flinty and sharp, then develops greater breadth on the palate. The ripe melon flavors finish with an edge of passion fruit. Drink now.
