Olivier B Les Amidyves Ventous Rouge, 2009

This is a Ventoux that came with very high praise from As a long-time fan of Ventous (La Vieille Ferme, Font Sane Vieilles Vignes, 3 Messes Basses, etc.), the wine surprises me a bit. Although it has traits that clearly differ from those of my long-time favorites, I still find it a very enjoyable wine and not at all over the hill at age 12.

Deep crimson. Red berries, violets but also some black fruit scents and flavors. Very smooth on the palate. Sophisticated face of Ventoux. Lush berries with freshness and polish. When Ventoux wines were some of the least expensive on the market, I usually bought them young and drank them within the first year. This wine proves that good Ventous is also capable of mid-term aging.
