Description

From the up-and-coming Cotes du Ventoux region, which lies east of Chateauneuf and on the southern side of the Ventoux mountain, the 2012 Cotes du Ventoux is a blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre, with both the Syrah and Mourvedre aged in barrel. Possessing outstanding purity and loads of character, with sappy underbrush, spice, garrigue and floral notes balanced by a core of black cherry and black raspberry fruit, it is medium-bodied, beautifully textured and hard to resist. It’s well worth checking out and will drink nicely for 4-5 years. Drink now-2018.

Consulting at a number of top estates (Marcoux, Grand Veneur, Raymond Usseglio, etc.), Xavier Vignon (along with Philippe Cambie) is one of the leading oenologists in the Southern Rhone – and you only need to taste his own negociant wines to understand why. I was blown away by these current and new releases. Across the board they showed beautifully made profiles, with not only loads of fruit and texture, but superb balance and classic Southern Rhone characters. In fact, each of the wines showed what I think of as textbook characteristics of the terroirs from which they come. In addition, the prices remain remarkably low, and these wines are a treasure trove for the savvy buyer.
