Wine tasting notes

Figs from Caromb and milk chocolate define the nose. The palate is dense, with aromas of the Comtat cherry with a touch of camphor, which brings freshness to the finish together with Sichuan pepper. Above all, it’s an elegant wine with a beautiful long, smooth progression in the mouth.

Food matching

Serve at below room temperature (15ºC). Ready to drink from 2015 and will improve for 5+ years from then. An elegant accompaniment to a leg of lamb.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2016) - 89 pts

Predominantly Grenache (with Syrah and Cinsault), the oak-aged 2016 Ventoux la Croix is marked by scents of mocha, roasted meat and grilled plums. Medium to full-bodied, but it is very drinkable, with a fresh, savory finish.

Tasted Oct 2015 - Fine aroma of deep, dark peppery fruit with the sweetness of Grenache and oak spice. Finely dry texture, deep pile, rounded tannins. Firm but still juicy. (JH)
