Reboul Wine Cellar Our good friend and former owner of this house, Robert Reboul, was 100% provençal by birth and by temperament. He had his own olive trees and picked and cured them himself. He had his own vineyards and made wine for his own use and that of his friends.

.....but it was on the recent soft launch of next year's Rapha Travel plans, and a subsequent 'nuther conversation with Brad Sauber that the subtleties of their strategy began to make sense.

Jancis Robinson comments

from Chateau Unang Cuvée Adeline 2009, Ventoux (16.5 points) Very pale gold. Creamy peach and almond aroma, plenty of ripe pear and a hint of something floral. Inviting.

from Decanter Magazine december 2011 | 23 What I've been drinking this month "Côtes de Ventoux is not an easy appellation to make a living from: it's large, amorphous, well down the Rhône Valley peckins order.
