The wine is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah (a higher percentage of Syrah than most CDR).
The wine is a dark plummy red. The nose shows off a typically French savoury barnyard funk. The palate offers plenty of up-front, sweet, juicy plums, vanilla and peppery spice. Finished with velvety soft tannins, this is a generous but elegant wine.
'Always a terrific value, the 2014 Ventoux Terrasses is no exception and offers complex, classic southern Rhone notes of dried garrigue, pepper, spice-box, licorice and sweet cherry fruit. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, elegant and balanced red that gains depth and richness with time in the glass, has loads Provencal character and a great finish. 91 points, The Wine Advocate.
This is an astounding score for a wine of this price!
