"Even better and one of the best values I’ve seen in a long time, the 2016 Ventoux Les Ribes du Vallat checks in as a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah brought up all in stainless steel. It offers a huge nose of garrigue, saddle leather, rare meat and loads of blackcurrant fruit. With full-bodied richness, a ripe, decadent, opulent profile and no hard edges, it’s a no-brainer purchase and ideal for drinking over the coming 2-4 years." (JD)

Winery Notes:
The name "Ribes du Vallat" refers to the plots of land where the vines grow and which are located along the gently sloping banks (the "ribes" in Provençal language) that border the natural river bed (the "vallat") that runs through the heart of the estate. Here, in springtime, painters come from afar to set up their easels and capture the multiple shades of green on display in this little corner of paradise. Our terroir is well exposed and well drained and sits nestled among pine trees, Provençal cypresses, green oaks, Mediterranean scrub and olive trees. There is a red wine, a white wine and a rosé.
