    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine is very powerful while remaining well-suited to the feminine palate because of its supple mouthfeel. It is well matched to red meat, game and cheese.

    75% Grenache
    25% Syrah

    Critical Acclaim:

    The opaque purple-colored 2009 Vacqueyras Cuvee de l’Hostellerie (75% Grenache and 25% Syrah aged in concrete) possesses high tannins, massive concentration and a more modern style. Despite the fact that Bernard told me no new oak was used, the wine smelled like some was present. Perhaps one of the foudres was replaced and hence the subtle impression of new oak in the background. This cuvee boasts huge fruit, density and richness. It will benefit from 1-2 years of bottle age and last for 10-15 years.
