« The 2011 Vacqueyras is a blend of 60% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre that was aged in one-third each new, 1-year-old and 2-year-old barrels for 12-18 months. It boasts up-front, decadently aromas of roasted meats and herbs, licorice, chocolate and black fruits that flow to a rounded, supple and richly texture palate. A big, chewy and hedonistic wine, enjoy it over the coming 5-7 years. » (Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Avec légèrement plus de texture et de profondeur que le Gigondas, le Vacqueyras 2012 est un autre vin de cette équipe qui montre joliment son terroir. Mûr, direct, mi-corsé et voluptueux, il délivre au nez des arômes de petits fruits noirs, de violette, de réglisse et d'herbes.
