    Winemaker's Notes:

    75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 5% Carignan, 5% Cinsault from 25 year old, organically grown vines from their Estate Vineyard. This is a high-altitude vineyard with stony, poor soils from the Oligocene Era - making for a rich, concentrated red.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 Cotes de Ventoux is a gorgeous blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, and the rest Carignan and Cinsault. The wine's bouquet is reminiscent of a great Cote Rotie even though the Syrah component is small and no Viognier is utilized. Exotic floral aromas intermixed with blackberry and cherry fruit jump from the glass. In the mouth, the wine is soft, velvety, medium to full-bodied, pure, elegant, and exotic. Former pharmacist Philippe Gimel uses a combination of organic and bio-dynamic farming methods in this vineyard.
