Blend: 60% Grenache, 40% Syrah

 

92 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

From the estate's vineyards near Sarrians, the 2016 Vacqueyras had yet to be bottled at the time of my June visit. It's full-bodied and creamy textured, with lovely raspberry and dried spice nuances.


91 Points from Jeb Dunnuck

Moving to the reds, neither of the 2016 Vacqueyras were bottled. The 2016 Vacqueyras checks in as a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that was brought up in a mix of wood tanks and stainless steel. This juicy, medium to full-bodied, elegant 2016 gives up classic notes of spices, garrigue, iron, and assorted dark fruits. I love its complexity as well as its elegance.

 

Winemaker Notes

Opulent notes of dark cherries,raspberries, and dried herbs . The mouth is utterly elegant with beautiful length driven by black berries and licorice.
