Delicate and intense at the same time, with aromas of flowers and fresh red berries. Very bight and juicy, with a lot of finesse and silky tannins, with crisp berry notes, kirch and white pepper.
95 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
Destemmed and aged in 30% concrete and 70% larger barrels, it has a thrilling perfume of carmelized cherries, strawberries, spiced meats, and licorice, with a touch of Cote Rotie-like floral notes developing with time in the glass. Seamless, medium to full-bodied, deep, and layered, it's all about finesse and elegance, yet still offers remarkable depth of fruit. Drink this beautiful Ventoux any time over the coming decade.
90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Ventoux Silica is the first vintage for this cuvee, which is 90% Grenache and 10% Cinsault, sourced from sandy soils. Seventy percent was aged in demi-muids, while the balance matured in concrete tank. Scents of cedar, vanilla and cranberries dominate the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is silky, yet finishes with a hard, brittle edge of tannins. Subsequent vintages seem more harmonious and supple. Drink 2019 - 2025.
