This wine simply reminds me of summer holidays in the south of France when I was younger. Long, lazy lunches of salads, charcuterie and grilled meats, washed down with the local rosé.

The problem is that the same wine never seems to taste the same when you get back home. Until this wine comes along.

It’s a classic Rhone blend of Cinsault, Syrah and Grenache from the up-and-coming Ventoux region, near the imposing Mont Ventoux.

Winemaker Sebastien Vincenti is fast becoming one of the most respected names in the Ventoux, if not the whole of the Rhone.

The grapes are farmed organically, picked at night to preserve freshness, and aged on fine lees in tank for 6 months before being bottled.

It’s vibrant pink in colour, and bright red fruits and wild herbs leap out of the glass. One sip and you’re instantly transported back to those good times in the south of France.

It was on my hunt for southern Rhone gems that my winemaker friend Denis Crespo gave me great advice. ‘Think about the Ventoux’ he told me, ‘the value and potential here is enormous’.

So when he connected me with Sebastien Vincenti of Domaine de Fondreche, arguably the Ventoux’s top producer, I couldn’t believe my luck.
