Les Vignerons du Mont-Ventoux, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œGrange des DamesÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚? rouge, Cotes du Ventoux 2000 (~$10/gift) ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Since my parents are again in France, I pulled out a gift from a previous trip some years ago. The back label states this red to be a blend of 50% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Carignan and 10% Cinsault. Dark ruby in color with a funky earthy nose of rhubarb, spice and a touch of Brett. Strawberry, leather and tar flavors with smooth tannins. Could use some more fruit, but pretty interesting anyway. Most likely would have shown better a couple years back so drink ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“em if you have ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“em. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œBarn of the LadiesÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚? seems like an apt name for this one 🙂 Score: 7.5/10

Hi, I’ve had the box wine named “Les Vignerons du Mont-Ventoux” and thought is was quite tasty. Do you have any idea how I can find out where to purchase it? I know North Side Liquors in Ithaca NY sells it, but I live near Boston.
Sorry, Matt, but all my wine searches have not turned up anyone who sells this wine in the U.S. Perhaps another reader will post a sighting, but there are plenty of tasty Rhone blends to choose from in most stores.
