Introducing SpeedyShark’s Mont Ventoux Fine Wine Gift. Presented in a retro style gift box is a 750ml bottle of Ventoux Soleil des Garrigues 2014 Red Wine and a legendary Mont Ventoux mountain climb information card.
An ideal gift for any cycling enthusiast, or simply treat yourself and enjoy a majestic glass of red wine that has come from the lower slopes of this iconic mountain which has featured on many occasions in the Tour de France!
It was believed in the 1906 Tour de France in stage 5 that rider Pottier was leading by approximately one hour at the halfway point. As legends go, he decided to quickly stop, enter a bar on the roadside and ordered a bottle of fine French red wine, he almost drank the complete bottle. As he saw the other cyclists passing by, Pottier jumped back on his bike and went after them, and miraculously won stage 5.
- An intense and consistent garnet colour, this lovely wine offers aromas of berry fruits with notes of herbs, pepper, vanilla and wood followed by concentrated juicy flavors of dark cherry.
- From the lower slopes of Mount Ventoux in south eastern Rhone, where there is evidence of wine production from as early as 30AD.
- Light and lively, great for Pinot Noir and Beaujolais enthusiasts too!
