Moving to the classic cuvee of the estate, the 2016 Ventoux Domaine checks in as 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre that will spend 18 months in a mix of stainless steel and tank. It offers a beautifully complex bouquet of black raspberries, candied violets, cedary spice and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, seamless, incredibly polished and elegant, I suspect it’s the finest Domaine release to date.

The glass-staining 2016 Ventoux Rouge, a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre, boasts knockout aromas of black cherries and blueberries. It's a medium to full-bodied wine, creamy-supple in texture even at this embryonic stage, with hints of dried herbs and baking spices adding complexity. If this quality is reflected in the bottle it should be a screaming value.
