- Closure: Cork
Opaque dark red black colour with a bright purple red hue. Fragrant dark raspberry and dark cherry aromas subtlety infused with dried herbs are followed by some liquorice with blackpepper end notes. Surprisingly concentrated and rich the medium bodied palate is bursting with succulent dark raspberry, dark cherry and liquorice flavours over a touch of meatiness on the back palate finishing with plenty of pepper and spice. The richness of fruit beautifully counterpointed by the vintages trademark freshness. Dryish finish with the lusciously textured fruit reigned in by a sturdy structure. Long aftertaste of spicy dark raspberries, liquorice, dried meats and blackpepper. If you can keep your hands off it this will be absolutely delicious drinking in 2-3 years time but will also easily cellar for 5-6 years.
Coming from higher elevation parcels, the 2015 Cairanne la Ventabren is another terrific effort from winemaker Gilles Ferran. Made from 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Carignan that’s brought up all in concrete, it’s loaded with notions of sweet cherries, roasted herbs, blackberries and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, supple and textured, with the elegance and freshness that’s the hallmark of the vintage, it should drink nicely for at least 7-8 years.
