Cotes de Ventoux Rhone Valley 2017 14%
An unusual blend of 60% old vine Carignan and 40% Grenache aged in large oak tanks for 18 months. Very deep colour. An expressive nose with black fruit and chocolate notes. Intense on the palate with very smooth tannins.
This is what Matt Walls had to say about the 2016 in Decanter magazine:
"Soft, gentle figgy aromas, violets and old vine vinosity. Soft, yielding style, but that Ventoux acidity gives it an edge. A typical but really enjoyable, balanced and characterful Ventoux"
