Ventoux Les Gélinottes 2016 - Alain Jaume & Fils


This Ventoux is a great bottle to start discovering the Southern Rhône area. Elaborated from a blend of Grenache and Syrah, it exhibits a nose of fresh red and black fruit (raspberry, blackcurrant). The palate is smooth with soft tannins, delicate fruity flavours and a nice peppery touch. A lovely wine to drink with a simple meat dish like a beef burger or a lamb moussaka!

89/100 "The estate makes a single release from the Ventoux appellation, which is located on the eastern, southern border of the Southern Rhone. The Ventoux les Gelinottes offers beautiful purity and freshness, with lots of sappy spring flowers and peppery characteristics intermixed with darker berry fruits, crushed rocks and licorice. Drink this incredibly polished, balanced and layered 2015 anytime over the coming 4-5 years." (previous vintage)
