This word comes from the Latin terras, meaning "lump of earth". The Côtes du Ventoux region is characterized by alternating hills and valleys. To make the most of this exceptional terroir, grape growers and other farmers had to accomplish the colossal feat of building terraces" into the steep hillsides, choosing especially well-protected, sunny locations.
70 % Grenache & 30% Syrah
Love this wine and WS JM gives it a 87. Another great wine in a mediocre year for S. Rhone wines. I will be buying a lot more.
