2019 Alain Jaume Ventoux Les Gelinottes - 89-91 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"From an appellation on the uptick, the 2019 Ventoux Les Gelinottes is another high-quality wine from this estate. Bright, medium-bodied aromas and flavors of black cherries and peppery, sappy herbs all emerge from this nicely textured, fresh, focused 2019 that has good concentration. The Ventoux is a cooler region, and this shows the wines more lively, fresh aromatics and focused texture. It will evolve for 5-7 years."

wa"The Maraschino cherry and garrigue-scented 2019 Ventoux Les Gelinottes is a juicy, mouthwatering effort. It's medium-bodied, silky and fresh, with hints of pine resin and tree bark on the largely savory finish. Drink it over the next few years. - Joe Czerwinski"

2018 Alain Jaume Ventoux Les Gelinottes - 91 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 87 pts"Primary blackberry and boysenberry mingle into bramble and dried mint on the nose and palate of this concentrated, mouthfilling blend of Grenache and Syrah. Bright acidity and firm, fine-grained tannins lend structure and persistence to the finish. At peak now, it should drink well through 2028. Anna Lee C. IIJIMA"

2017 Alain Jaume Ventoux Les Gelinottes - 89-91 PTS - WA

wa"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"

2016 Alain Jaume Ventoux Les Gelinottes - 91 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"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."

2015 Alain Jaume Ventoux Les Gelinottes - 89 PTS - WA

wa89"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"
