|Availability:||In stock (5)|
Opulent notes of dark cherries,raspberries, and dried herbs . The mouth is utterly elegant with beautiful length driven by black berries and licorice.
60% Grenache, 40% Syrah
93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - A representative tank sample of the 2017 Vacqueyras showed impressive ripeness and concentration. Leather and clove notes accent blueberry fruit in this full-bodied blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah. It finishes long and creamy in texture.
92 Jeb Dunnuck - Moving to the reds and just bottled, the 2017 Vacqueyras (60/40 Grenache and Syrah) is a medium to full-bodied, ripe, balanced effort that has loads of black fruits, truffle, olive, and peppery herb aromas and flavors. Due to miserable yields, there was no Special Cuvée produced, so this cuvée includes those parcels that normally go into the more expensive cuvée. It’s going to keep for 8-10 years.
91 James Suckling - Very attractive wild raspberries and red plums on offer here with a brambly, poached red-fruit palate, ribbon-smooth tannins and a lick of spice to close. Drink over the next four years.
91 Wine Enthusiast - Plush blueberry and blackberry preserves are lifted by swathes of violet and rose petal in this ripe, mouthwatering red. A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah matured in neutral wood, it’s an ample, open-knit wine framed by fine, feathery tannins. Juicy and forward, it’s best enjoyed now through 2024.
