« Le Vacqueyras 2011 est un assemblage de Syrah, Grenache et Mourvèdre élevés chacun pour tiers en barriques nouvelles, de 1 et 2 vins pendant 12 à 18 mois. Il avance des arômes de viande rôtie, d’herbes, de réglisse, de chocolat et de fruits noirs menant à une bouche texturée, ronde, souple et riche. Un grand vin, gourmand et hédoniste, dont il faut profiter au cours des 5 à 7 prochaines années. » (Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)
