Colour: Dark purple. Nose: black berries (cherry), garrigues and black olives notes. Mouth: very ample structure, richness and power balanced by the freshness of the Ventoux terroir, garrigues, black cherry and tarry notes with velvety tannins.

"The 2016 Ventoux Quintessence is 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache, aged in 40% new barrels. Despite the ample new oak, it doesn't seem overly woody, instead offering up loads of crème de cassis and blueberry fruit. Savory complexity comes in the form of dried herbs and baking spices, plus a dusting of cocoa powder on the long, warming finish. This is a full-bodied and fully ripe wine, but it stays balanced and never comes across as heavy or rustic in the least." 91-93 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate
