The first vintage for the cuvee, the stacked 2009 Cotes du Ventoux Il Etait Une Fois (80% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre, and 5% Syrah, aged all in new oak) is a full-bodied, sexy, opulent and mouth-filling southern Rhone that has plenty of garrigue, cedary spice, leather and ripe red and black fruits. Packed with character, ripe, lengthy and guaranteed to put a smile on your face, drink it over the coming 4-5 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

A fresh and inticing nose opens with raspberry and blackberry liqueur meshed with notes of lavender anise and a whiff of pepper. Full bodied and superbly concentrated on the palate sweet succulent berry fruit continues to gain in intensity before gradually receding on the long finish. Though vibrant and youthful now the tannins make their presence felt-impeccably and precisely-so this should be a real treat to enjoy over the next decade.
