The Perrin family make Château de Beaucastel, one of the most famous reds from the Rhône Valley. This silky Ventoux red is equally impressive, and it won’t leave as big a dent in your wallet. Just inside the Provence region sits the mighty Mont Ventoux. Cycling fans will know it as the most gruelling climb of the Tour de France. Though the vines that grow on the mountain’s slopes aren’t half as demanding. Grapes retain their natural acidity thanks to the high altitude, so resulting wines are wonderfully aromatic and full of freshness. This is supple, fresh and juicy. Flavours of blackberry, blackcurrant and a touch of cinnamon will complement slow-cooked pulled pork.
