2015 974 Ventvri - AOC Ventoux
This has a medium purple colour and is dominated by dark fruit flavours such as plums, cherries and black berries well balanced with a subtle smoky aroma as well as a hint of floral geranium aromas. On the palate this has a medium plus body, again vibrant dark berry fruit, chocolate and a medium intense, slightly structured tannin. Drink from 2017.
`A fabulously juicy, unoaked red from the southern Rhône with beetroot brightness, supple black fruit juicness and a tingling freshness. Serve a little cold if you wish, this is an easy-drinking, characterful and joyful fresh red designed to be drunk in youth. Goes with charcuterie and cold meats, pizza and pasta. Aperitif wine, party wine.` 88 points, The Wine Gang, Sept 2017
