Longtime readers will know that I love this cuvée, which is year in, year out, one of the great value buys out there. The 2017 Terrasses is even better than the 2016 and ranks with the finest vintages I’ve tasted, matching the stunning 2010
93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Showing more intensity and depth than the delicious 2016, the 2017 Ventoux Terrasses (tasted from tank) is a blend of 54% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 4% Cinsault and 2% Mourvèdre. Crushed stone notes accent dried spices and raspberries on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate delivers rich, deep fruit flavors, plenty of concentration and an impressive velvety finish.
Deep ruby color. Intense nose with spicy notes (especially black pepper) and red berries. This very balanced wine offers very round tannins and fresh berries aromas, with some floral and spicy flavors.
Very easy to match with simple dishes such as pizzas, kebabs,charcuterie, vegetable pies or salads to more ambitious cuisine liketerrines, poultry (guineafowl, turkey), roasted or grilled meats. Blend: 60% Grenache 40%Syrah
