    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep colour, with an engaging nose of ripe, spicy aromas. Fresh on the palate, with notes of violet and bitter orange.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Of the three village offerings from Tardieu-Laurent – the Vacqueyras Vieilles Vignes, the Rasteau Vieilles Vignes, and the Gigondas Vieilles Vignes – the 2009 Vacqueyras has the most fat and corpulence and is the most vivid and purest expression of Grenache. It is a 10- to 15-year wine.
    Range: 91-93

    The Wine Advocate

    This wine epitomizes the luck ripeness of the 2009 vintage, yet does so without going over the top into dried fruit. Instead, it delivers brandied cherries spiced with cinnamon and clove, plus a touch of chocolate. It's full bodied and maybe just a bit warm, but the long finish is textured like fine suede.

    Opaque ruby. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, cherry-cola, Moroccan spices and lavender. Vibrant and precise on the palate, offering energetic red and dark berry flavors and a late note of bitter chocolate. Becomes more floral with air and finishes with notes of blackberry, vanilla bean and anise. This wine has put on weight and sweetness since I saw it last year.
