Mas Oncle Ernest 'Patience'

A lighter style of Rhône red and all the more enjoyable for that. Wonderful cherry and black pepper on the nose followed by red berries and blackcurrants with a touch of vanilla. Well integrated tannins make this a very approachable wine made from the Syrah and Grenache grapes.

Alex Roux

Alex Roux is a winemaker we’re very excited about. Only 30 years old, he is transforming his vineyard and making wonderful organic wines in the increasingly sought-after Ventoux A/C in the Southern Rhône. The mountainside property is named after his great grandfather, Ernest, who was the first to plant vines here.

 

Rugged and Wild

Alex is the first generation to make and bottle wine from the family plots on the western and southern sides of Mont Ventoux. It’s a rugged region with a wide variety of soil types and his vineyards are hidden up mountain paths between oak, beech and cedar trees. It was wonderful to see the wild herbs growing on his vineyards, a natural result of his organic practices.

 

The Little Burgundian

His vines are high enough on Mont Ventoux to benefit from significant cooling in the otherwise Mediterranean climate. This helps him to create a lighter style of Rhône red and a wonderful counterpoint to the heavier brutes from neighbouring appellations. His wines’ remarkable freshness and elegance are traits that have earned him the nickname “the little Burgundian at the bottom of Ventoux.”

Mas Oncle Ernest

The 25 hectares that comprise Alix Roux's Mas Oncle Ernest estate are formed for a soft sandstone known locally as "Safre". Cycling fans will know Mount Ventoux which overlooks Alix's vineyards, funneling wind across the vineyards, cooling the vines in summer.
