This is deep, vinous and driving, chock full of fruity berry acidity. It’s really vibrant, with a subtle mineral seam and stalks that work well here, lending fragrance but without contributing hardness or astringency. It’s generous with a very long finish but not excessive - balanced and drinkable, but don't underestimate its ageing capacity. A selection of the oldest vines of the estate (65 to 115-years-old), organically grown on sandstone and marl, handpicked, whole-bunch fermented with indigenous yeasts and bottled without filtration or fining after maturing in old foudres and demi-muids.

From vines 80 to 100 years old, the 2018 Gigondas Ventabren is similar in style to the Tradition but slightly more concentrated and tannic. Pretty aromas of fines herbes, rose petals and orange zest join ripe cherries on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is creamy in texture, fading elegantly into a long, silky finish. (JC)
The more limited production cuvée, the 2018 Gigondas Ventabren is actually cut from the same cloth as the traditional cuvée, revealing a light ruby, translucent color, and an incredibly Provençal bouquet of kirsch, white pepper, dried herbs, and floral aromas and flavors. Picking up more pepper and spice with time in the glass, it’s medium to full-bodied and has a seamless, elegant texture, ripe tannins, and a good finish. Both of these wines show incredibly Provençal, elegant, complex profiles. 91+
Rich and alluring, with a smoky Lapsang souchong tea note weaving around a core of crushed black cherry, plum and anise flavors. Dense but silky in feel, featuring a long, smoldering finish. (JM)
