Cuvée Le Gentleman 2015, AOC Ventoux
Le Gentleman is our flagship red wine, made from the best and oldest plots of vines, all between 30 and 60 years old.
The 2015 vintage was exceptional in both its very low volume and very high quality. The high quality resulted from the unusual conditions during the growing season - we had lost the majority of our Grenache and some other varieties of grapes by mid June. The remainder of the grape harvest grew healthily, but with unusually small and concentrated berries of exceptional flavour. As the production of Grenache was more reduced than other varieties, the blend of our wines also had to change and the 2015 Gentleman has a much higher weighting of Syrah.
The wine was fermented in stainless steel and approximately 25% was aged for two years in previously used oak barrels. The flavours are intense and complemented by the light use of oak.
30% Grenache Noir`
Blackcurrant berries leading to white pepper and elegant, spiced ripe forest fruit.
Subtle tannins with opulent fruit and a mineral femininity which leaves a refined and long finish.
