Bold, savoury, menthol nose. Delicious, spiced palate that is fresh and very long. Great value. Drinking Window 2021 - 2041
Cut from the same mold as the Traditional cuvée, the 2015 Gigondas Ventabren offers more black fruits, olive, underbrush, and pepper, and is medium to full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, pure and even elegant. A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Cinsault brought up all in ancient foudres, it shows the more fresh, elegant style of the vintage, has beautiful purity and should be at its best from 2020-2030 (JebDunnuck.com)
The 2015 Gigondas Ventabren, from 80- to 100-year-old vines, is 70% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre and 10% Cinsault, aged in foudres. The ripe Grenache fruit sings of cherries, raspberries and stone fruit, while peppery spice notes linger on the finish. Drink this full-bodied, supple wine over the next 10-15 years. (JC)
Opaque ruby. Highly aromatic cherry and dark berry aromas are complicated by licorice, garrigue and cola flourishes. Concentrated dark fruit and spicecake flavors show surprising energy given their heft, and a mineral nuance adds cut. Shows appealing sweetness on the clinging finish, which features a cherry liqueur quality and fine-grained tannins that sneak in late. (JR)
70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault. Matured in old oak foudres. Cask sample. Tasted blind. Mid garnet. Rather light and tentative on the nose. Juicy and easy. A casual sort of Gigondas? Nothing out of place. 16/20 points
