Domaine Champ Long Ventoux Cuvee Speciale 2015

The Cuveé Spécialé Ventoux from Domaine Champ Long has luscious aromas of blackcurrants and red cherry which are accompanied by delicate spicy notes in a warm and satisfying Southern Rhône style red wine.

Producer Note - Nestled in the foothills of the Mont Ventoux, on the Princes of Orange route, is the Domaine de Champ-Long. The sheltered and exceptionally sunny estate covers 30 hectares, straddling the Ventoux and Côtes du Rhône appellations. An exceptional diversity of terroirs contributes to the complexity of these fine wines, which are vinified using methods that fuse traditional skills with modern technology. Owners Béatrice, Christian and Jean-Christophe Gely, cultivate their passion for wine in this beautiful countryside, on the estate which has belonged to the family since 1820.

Vintage - 2015 was a great vintage for Domaine Champ-Long, with a warm, sunny growing season resulting in healthy, ripe grapes and powerful wines which show excellent ageing potential. Vineyard Ventoux wines benefit from an unspoilt natural environment of exceptional biodiversity and the vineyard at Domaine Champ-Long is no exception. The vines age from 25 to 45 years and are low yielding producing 35 hectolitres per hectare. The soils are made up of pebbly limestone and clay. The vineyard faces south west and is cultivated according to traditional methods, with the utmost respect for the environment. Organic fertilisers are applied and the grapes are manually harvested at optimum maturity levels.

Winemaking - The grapes were destemmed and gently crushed. Fermentation took place at controlled temperatures of 24°C in concrete vats with racking and daily pump overs to ensure the optimal levels of colour and flavour extraction, while also imparting structure to the wine. One third of the wine was aged in four year old 400 litre French oak barrels for 18 months; the remainder was aged in concrete vats to retain the purity of fruit and the nuances of the terroir.

Tasting Note - This delicious red wine has deep luscious aromas of blackcurrants and dark cherry which are accompanied by delicate spicy notes on the nose. Round and beautifully structured with supple tannins and a long, satisfying finish.

Serving Suggestion - Grilled red meats, pork tenderloin, veal chops with a wild mushroom sauce; or a saddle of rabbit.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
