 Chateau Unang Ventoux 2009

★★1 / 2

Rhone Valley, France, $19

Dense, deep and dark, it could pass for a Gigondas or a Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This wine, and another wonderful bottling called La Croix, demonstrate the quality that can come from lesser-known regions in Provence and the Rhone Valley.

Vintage 59/Country Vintner: Available in the District at A.M. Wine Shoppe; on the list at Bistro Francais. Available in Maryland at Silesia Liquors in Fort Washington. Available in Virginia at Out of Site Wines in Vienna, Slaters Market in Alexandria; on the list at Ashby Inn in Paris.
