Domaine Vindemio Regain Cotes du Ventoux 2008
Rhone Red Blends from Rhone, France
Varietal Blend: 60% Grenache, 40% Syrah
Organic and Biodynamic - certified
The Wine Advocate - "...the 2008 Regain, is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah. It offers a deep ruby/purple color along with lots of dusty, loamy soil notes intermixed with notions of pepper, black cherries, spice, and flowers. Pure and medium-bodied with some light tannins to be resolved, it is a gutsy, delicious red to enjoy over the next 2-3 years. "
Domaine Vindemio Winery
Vindemio is a vineyard estate created in 2006 by a group of friends united by a passion for wine, and a belief in the conviviality and pleasure that comes with wine. They have been brought together by Jean Marot, former winemaker of Domaine le Murmurium, and his son Guillaume.
The small property, at the foot of Mont Ventoux, consists of 13 hectares of organically and biodynamically farmed vineyards near the villages of Mormoiron and Villes sur Auzon at about 300 meters elevation. View all Domaine Vindemio Wines

About France - Other regionsWhen it comes to wine, France is a classic. Classic blends, grapes and styles began in the country and they still remain. Think about it - people ask for a Burgundian style Pinot Noir, they refer to wines as Bordeaux or Rhone blends - Champagne even had to pass a law to stop international wineries from putting their region on the label of all sparkling wine.
The top regions of France are: Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Languedoc-Roussillon, Loire, Rhone. And these regions are so diverse! It makes sense that wine regions throughout the world try to emulate their style. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah are no longer French varieties, but international varieties. They may not be the leader of cutting edge technology or value-priced wines, but there is no doubt that they are still producing wines of great quality and diversity.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
