Natalie's Score: 90/100

Balanced, full-bodied and savoury delicious. Although Grenache leads in the blend at 80%, there's also 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre grapes in this cuvee. Winemaker Stéphane Vedeau lovingly brings forward luscious fruit flavours that Syrah adds to this red wine blend from the Rhone Valley. Robust and smooth yet it has terrific concentration and complexity. Savoury with satisfying aromas and flavours of black cherry and cedar forest floor. Attractive notes of black raspberry, violets and wild brush on the mid-palate. A powerful red wine from the Rhone Valley, with seriously rich and fleshy ripe brandied cherry aromas and flavours. Polished tannins with anise and blackberry on the finish. Decant for 1 hour for maximum pleasure. Pair with rare cuts of meat.

Food pairings: braised beef ribs, Porterhouse steak, standing rib roast.

Reviews and Ratings

La Ferme Du Mont Le Ponnant 2016 is a savoury and dry 80% Grenache, 10% each Syrah and Mourvèdre red wine blend produced by Winemaker, Stéphane Vedeau. A powerful red wine from the Rhone Valley, this full-bodied red rich with red plum, cherry liqueur, blackberry and cake spice flavours on the palate. Tannins are fine and acidity is balanced. Decant for 1 hour prior to pouring with a Denver steak done rare. Drink now and for the next three years - Community Wine Reviews
