It is garnet red with bright violet gleams. The nose speaks of conviviality with its delicious fruitiness. The Syrah offers its wild cherry notes, and the Grenache its aromas of strawberry and raspberry. In the mouth we find an elegant, well-structured wine, with red berry fruit. Ageing in barrel or foudre from a selection of French forests for 12 months structures and enhances the aromatic palette. Elegant and fresh, delicious and warm hearted, this 2019 blend has captured the paradox and the unique balance of the Montagne de Ventabren.

This wine is an invitation to explore the highest terroir in Cairanne, the Montagne de Ventabren. Benefitting from altitude sunshine and a terroir of marl and scree, it is famed for being home to the finest parcels of the Cairanne cru.

This wine is a parcel selection from the altitude mono-terroir of the Montagne de Ventabren. Each grape variety reveals a different aspect: Syrah draws its freshness and structure from it, and Grenache its intensity and richness.

The blend is dominantly Syrah because in the incredibly hot summer of 2019 this grape resisted perfectly. The Syrah, with its energy, colouring power and its aromas was aged in barrel for 12 months to tame its power, whilst the Grenache, which is much more intense and generous, was aged in stainless steel vats for 12 months.

The Montagne de Ventabren is one of the finest terroirs in Cairanne. It covers the highest point of the village at 320 metres altitude. To reach it, one has to cross the village in the direction of Saint-Roman-de-Malegarde, to the north, and embark upon a narrow road that winds its way up into the hillside amongst superb parcels of vines.

The Montagne de Ventabren owes its renown first of all to its situation at altitude and its orientation that benefits from ideal levels of sunshine that enable the grapes to ripen to perfection. And its unique geological composition makes it a terroir that is particularly suited to old vines. Here limestone scree from the Miocene period, scattered with rare flintstone, carved out of the rock by the force of erosion, alternates with lacustrine marl. This deep, well balanced terroir counterbalances the intense heat of the Provencal sun by providing unexpected freshness. The combination of altitude with the marl terroir with large limestone nodules gives the wine its wonderfully complex, powerful, elegant, and fresh aromas.

The grapes are picked in whole bunches, into small 16kg crates. The cool hours of the morning are favoured for picking these exceptional parcels.

We recommend serving it at 16° as a summer aperitif or with a light meal. It will pair perfectly with chicken liver pate, duck pastrami or pan seared red mullet in a lightly spicy sauce.
