The Le Ventabren (70% Grenache, 20% Carignan and 10% Syrah) exhibits a very deep dark purple black colour with dark red purple hue and a lifted bouquet of liquorice, incense and black raspberry followed by some meaty, spice overtones. The palate possesses both opulence and richness in abundance with mouthfilling flavours of black raspberry and liquorice dominate over a background of dried meats with a spicy finish. Soft fleshy mouthfeel. Velvet smooth tannins with very long black raspberry, liquorice, dried meats and spice.
Drink over the next 3-4 years (2016-2017).
This outstanding estate is located in Rasteau and owns over 160 acres of vines. Proprietor Gilles Ferran uses his friend Philippe Cambie as his consulting oenologist, even though Ferran himself was trained as an oenologist at the University of Montpellier. These are all top-notch wines. The outstanding 2011 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Cairanne La Ventabren (70% Grenache, 20% Carignan and 10% Syrah) is soft, expansive and voluminous in the mouth with heady garrigue, white pepper, underbrush, forest floor, raspberry and kirsch notes. Drink this beautiful, medium to full-bodied Cairanne over the next 3-4 years.
