Wine rated (guide 2017) : 15/20 (Millésime 2013) (Très bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 3***Stars (A production of high-quality, that could be used as a reference in its area)

About the vineyard : Figure de Vacqueyras, on doit beaucoup à Serge Férigoule et ses vins accompagnent l'histoire de cette appellation. D'abord ouvrier viticole, il est depuis 1990 le propriétaire du Sans des Cailloux. Une vingtaine d'hectares disséminés entre Vacqueyras et Sarrians sont vendangés à parfaite maturité et élevés longuement. Dans un style sans concession, qui tourne presque le dos à la modernité, ce domaine produit cinq cuvées en rouge, dont la concentration et le toucher délicat mériteraient une plus grande précision aromatique. Allez, un soupçon de progrès et le sang des cailloux continuera de couler dans la gorge et nombreux amateurs !

About the vineyard : Ce beau domaine de Vacqueyras dispose d’un magnifique terroir sur un plateau de galets roulés. Certifié biologique dès 2010, certifié en biodynamie depuis 2012, avec des rendements strictement contrôlés, la propriété produit des vacqueyras imposants qui demandent du temps pour se révéler pleinement : ce sont des vins souvent très structurés et d'une grande richesse , aux maturités élevées, même si, sur les derniers millésimes, ils ont tendance à s’affiner. La cuvée Lopy est le vin le plus riche et dense du domaine mais, sur certains millésimes, nous préférons l'équilibre des cuvées d'entrée de gamme. Le blanc s'impose comme un joli référent dans le secteur avec un élevage mieux intégré que par le passé et un fruit harmonieux quelque soit le millésime.
