La Ferme Du Mont "Le Ponnant" Côtes du Rhône Villages 2016

This delicious Côtes du Rhône has been awarded 92 Points from Decanter and 16.5 Points from JancisRobinson.com

La Ferme du Mont is one of the up and coming superstars of the Southern Rhône, under the ownership of perfectionist winemaker Stephane Vedeau. When we tasted his wines we were blown away, and when we met him we quickly learnt of his meticulous attention to detail, and passion for producing wonderfully pure wines which show character, elegance and quality. He owns around 50 hectares of old vines which he tends to without the use of chemicals and pesticides, and continues with a sensitive approach in the winery, to let the fruit and the terroir shine through in the wines. These are some of the best Rhône wines we've tasted, which we highly recommend.

Tasting Notes

A deep red in colour, this displays aromas of very ripe fruit, black cherries, flowers (violets) and liquorice, plus hints of laurel and black pepper. The palate is ripe and rounded and full of black fruits: blackberries, black cherry and blueberry, with savoury spice and liquorice notes. The soft tannins and full-body are balanced with a freshness which brings finesse and elegance. This is a delicious Côtes du Rhône to enjoy now and the over the next few years.
