2009 La Ferme du Mont CdR Villages “Le Ponnant”
La Ferme du Mont – a relatively small producer based in Valreas, Southern Rhone. They make outstanding Rhone wines in different price classes. This CdR Villages wine is a the bottom of their range, but nevertheless very good.
On the nose you get raspberry, plum and a hint of tobacco and bay leaf. On the palate nice structure. Certainly tannins, however well balanced. Dark fruit, plum, black cherries and some nice minerality as well. Acidity keeps it all elegant. Very well done and a real steal at €10,95.
