Wine tasting notes

This wine has a vibrant, violet-tinged hue. Its nose takes in ripe cherry, strawberry and pepper notes. In the mouth the cherry continues but edges towards balsamic and liquorice, with a firm acidity and minerality keeping it fresh. The soft finish is blacker fruit with a little cocoa.

Food matching

Serve at room temperature or slightly cooler. Ready to drink from 2015 and will easily last 5 years. Has great balance and will work with meatier dishes, but we like its crispness with sausages and mash.

Apparently still in tank, Chateau Unang's 2016 Ventoux looks to be potentially excellent. Licorice and black cherry notes mark the nose, while the full-bodied palate is dark and sexy, creamy and supple in texture, with hints of crushed stones underscoring the long finish.

Wonderful purity and delicacy. Very much the lighter side of Grenache, with bright raspberry fruits and delicious milk chocolate flavours. Fine, chalky tannic texture. A real charmer
