Wine Review: La Ferme Julien Rouge

La Ferme Julien Rouge is an everyday pleasure wine produced in France. As a red wine it is served with most meat, pasta, and spicy foods. Made from a combination of Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache Syrah it is well balanced option. Seasoned in oak barrels for 10 months it takes on a touch of sweetness.

Nose: Ripe berries, spices and tobacco
Taste: Subtle, cherry, ripe, vanilla, wet, and light aftertaste. Soft tannins.
Glass: Dark red and medium body.

The wine was grown and produced in France on the Mont Ventoux slopes that sits over 5,700 feet above sea level. The area supports high quality grape production and adds to the wines flavor. The type of soil also supports a solid production of mild wines.

According to Food Tourists the region is known for its interesting wines all the way over to mediocre wines. It was part of the Ancient Roman wine making system and still maintains its small town charm. Whites, reds and roses are produced here and exported to the rest of the world.
