The wine is produced from hilly vineyards that are mainly planted on sandy and clay soils. They are located on the East side of the Rhone valley, in the Vaucluse area. Welcome to the foothills of the well known “Mont Ventoux” Mountain.

The color is intense, purple-tinged garnet. The aromatic range of the nose goes from fresh berries to black fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry). The palate is full-flavored, with very soft tannins and aromas of the fruit already mentioned. This is a gorgeous style of wine, fruity driven, for every day drinking...anytime !

wa"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"

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"

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."

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"

wa88"The 2014 Cotes du Ventoux Les Gélinottes is a pretty, pure and elegant red made from 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah. Aged all in stainless steel, it offers plenty of charm in its sappy herbs, white pepper, cherry and raspberry-laced bouquet. This gives way to a medium-bodied, fresh, clean and classy Ventoux that is ideal for drinking over the coming 4-5 years. -JD"

wine enthusiast 87 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 Advocate"A blend of even parts Grenache and Syrah that spent 8 months in concrete tank, the Alain Jaume 2012 Ventoux Les Gelinottes is a superb mid-week drinker that offers plenty of sweet berry fruit, garrigue and flowers in a charming, medium-bodied and easy-drinking package. Despite the easygoing feel, the purity here is top-notch and this is a solid effort. Drink now-2016. -JD"
