The estate makes a single release from the Ventoux appellation, which is located on the eastern, southern border of the Southern Rhone. The 2015 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. Like most of these 2015s from the Jaume Brothers, it’s a killer value.
Layers of leafy herb and earth tones meld into riper notes of plum and black cherry in this fresh but full-bodied wine. Refreshing acidity and hints of licorice and black pepper lend vibrance to a moderately long, chalky finish.
