Cristia Collection Ventoux 17
|Delivery time:||Same day Pickup|
This medium-bodied best-buy Ventoux rouge is almost entirely Grenache with just a touch of Syrah and Mourvedre, lending an additional layer of finesse. The family sources the fruit for this release from top properties all throughout the Ventoux and the end result sure shows it!
In the glass, it's all about savory red fruits, especially raspberry, framed with notes of garigue. The smooth palate has great brightness and lift and there's just enough soft tannin present to be a winner at the dinner table. This is another perfect "Tuesday Night" wine that will shine with or without food and will be a go-to for Hammond me when the neighbors stop in for a glass.
On a side note, I'll have some of the Cristia domain wines in stock soon. They're beautiful wines, and while not in the bargain range, they're great wines for the weekend and special occasions. Keep an eye out -- especially for their Châteauneuf-du-Pape!
