Les Dissidents Le Paria 2019
The Grenache that is historically used in our rosés because deemed uninteresting in red, makes up 100% of our “Paria” cuvée. Less exclusive than the “Dissidents”, these wines were nevertheless crafted to the same standards and with the same sense of transgression. They are unyielding, and affirm the frank identity of our terroir and the love we feel for it. They excel in their freshness, juiciness and minerality. These are signature wines, flag-bearers of the knowledge and skill of Maison Ventenac, in a rather more extreme style than that of the Chateau.
Le Paria - It was once an undesirable variety planted in our locality. "Not ripe enough" for some, "not in the right place" for others, "just perfect" according to us!! This variety is the Grenache and the result is in this bottle. A juicy, quaffable wine to share with free-thinking drinkers.
Signed, a free-thinking drinker.
Relatively deep crimson for a Grenache. Sweet start is the most recognisably Grenache-like thing about the palate. Quite marked tannins but no obvious decay. The no-sulphur strategy seems to have worked in this regard. Simple fruity drink.
