"A fine effort and a better value, the 2018 Ventoux les Gelinottes is purchased wine from a single supplier. It's peppery on the nose, with black cherry fruit. Medium-bodied, silky and fine, it should be consumed over the next few years. - Joe Czerwinski"

"The best les Gelinottes I've tasted, the 2017 Ventoux les Gelinottes is a 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah. It mixes elements of both grapes, like tar and red raspberries, in a medium to full-bodied wine that's rich and velvety yet juicy and mouthwatering at the same time, finishing on notes of orange zest.- Joe Czerwinski"

"The 2016 Ventoux Les Gelinottes is a smoking good red based on equal parts Grenache and Syrah. The Ventoux continues to be a treasure trove of great values for the savvy buyer, and this delivers loads of ripe red fruits, pepper, and leafy herb notes in a rounded, fleshy, fruit-loaded style that’s a joy to drink. Enjoy bottles over the coming 3-4 years."
"The estate makes a single release from the Ventoux appellation, which is located on the eastern, southern border of the Southern Rhone. The 2015 Ventoux les Gelinottes offers beautiful purity and freshness, with lots of sappy spring flowers and peppery characteristics intermixed with darker berry fruits, crushed rocks and licorice. Drink this incredibly polished, balanced and layered 2015 anytime over the coming 4-5 years. Like most of these 2015s from the Jaume Brothers, it’s a killer value. - Jeb Dunnuck"

"Vivid ruby-red. Red berries and white pepper on the lively nose and in the mouth. Tangy and light on its feet, displaying good finishing clarity. Silky tannins sneak in late and add gentle closing grip. - Josh Raynolds" - Vinous (June 2016), 88 pts
"Masses of black cherries and blackberries ultimately come across as a bit simple, but satisfying. There's plenty of flavor in this medium-bodied red, and the fruit is fresh rather than confected, with a hint of cocoa on the finish. Drink now–2020." - Wine Enthusiast (December 2016), 87 pts
