One of the leading micro-estates in the Ventoux, Domaine Martinelle wines showcase the freshest, ripest fruit from the south’s most captivating high-altitude vineyards. Winemaker Corinna Faravel is a pioneer among a group of young artisans who early on recognized the hidden potential of the Ventoux, a diverse yet spectacular region in France’s south known for far too long for the quantity but not the quality of its wines. Located due east from the mountain vineyards of Gigondas, Domaine Martinelle combines an organic focus with a fiery passion in wines that speak honestly of the land’s beauty and endless pleasure.

Estate vineyards are located in the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail, east of Gigondas. The predominant soils are Trias (decomposed limestone with iron-rich, ochre topsoil); other areas have richer, clay-based soils. Vineyards face east/southeast; a majority of parcels are found on a broad, terraced hill that at its peak is 900 feet high. AGE OF VINES: 10 to 50 years WINEMAKING: Hand-harvested, with grapes sorted in the fields and at the cellar. Partially destemmed and lightly crushed; fed via gravity into unlined cement tanks and fermented on indigenous yeasts. After malolactic conversion, the final blend is assembled and aged further in cement tank. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Aromas of red berries, garrigue, light pepper. Bright and fresh, with flavors of raspberry and red plum.
