    Winemaker's Notes:

    Easily one of the top wines of the appellation—sultry, saturated and very aromatic. Winemaker Thierry Faravel blends two distinct vineyards on the plateau of Vacqueyras, as this higher perch keeps vines cooler while delivering precise, fresh and savory fruit. A rich blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre. The Mourvèdre dominates the nose, with suggestions of boysenberries, licorice and spice; the mouth drips with plum compote, blackberry jam and vibrates with the energy of a spice bazaar. Wonderfully juicy and plush; the finish lingers for what seems like hours. Balanced and very seductive.

    Critical Acclaim:

    While most of La Bouissiere’s holdings are in Gigondas, they also have 6.5 acres in Vacqueyras. A blend of 60% Grenache from 50 year old vines and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre, the dark plum/ruby/garnet-hued 2009 Vacqueyras exhibits the vintage’s sexy, soft tannins, high glycerin, rich fruit and velvety personality. With an evolved nose of cedar, loamy soil, forest floor and red and black fruit notes, this deep, rich, full-bodied, charming effort can be drunk over the next 5-6 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    (58% grenache, 28% mourvedre and 14% syrah): Vivid red. Smoky cherry and black raspberry on the nose, with complicating notes of licorice, lavender and allspice. Sweet, penetrating red fruit flavors show very good depth, with bright acidity providing back-end cut. Finishes with excellent chewy persistence, the red fruit notes repeating strongly.
