Ventoux Rouge "Les Traverses" 2015 - Paul Jaboulet Aîné


Located East of Avignon and Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the Côtes du Ventoux appellation is known to produce red wines of excellent value, when elaborated with care. This cuvée from Paul Jaboulet Aîné, one of the most prestigious winemaker in the Rhône, is just that! A lovely wine boasting fresh aromas of red fruit, spices and cedar. Palate is lively with fine tannins in the background. Nothing over-complicated, just a great pick from this up-coming region.

Jancis-Robinson.jpg

16+/20 "Punchy nose – much riper and darker than the Ventoux of old. Masses of juicy fruit inside a herby structure with some sweetness but noticeably cooler and fresher than lowland wines. GV"

Wine-Spectator.jpg

88/100 "Modest cherry and black tea notes mingle, turning slightly trim through the cedar-lined finish. Drink now." (previous vintage)
