    Winemaker's Notes:

    This is a characteristically earthy wine, traditional in style. It already exudes spicy hints of the garrigues — a typical Mediterranean scrub — as well as pepper and bay leaf. The antithesis of modern and international wines!

    Blend: 75% Grenache, 25% Syrah

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is gorgeous, with warm espresso, bittersweet ganache and Black Forest cake notes leading the way, followed quickly by lush currant preserves, crushed plum and hoisin sauce notes. The long, graphite-filled finish has terrific cut, while a smoldering feel lingers.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2010 Vacqueyras Vieilles Vignes is pure garrigue, kirsch liqueur, lavender and licorice. Full-bodied and unctuously textured, it displays the vintage’s slightly higher acid and lower pH style that gives it a precision and vibrancy that is unusual in the southern Rhone.
    Range: 91-93

    The Wine Advocate

    Bright purple. A heady bouquet displays scents of red fruit preserves, Asian spices and potpourri, with a licorice note in the background. Smooth and seamless on the palate, offering vibrant black raspberry and cherry flavors and a hint of spice cake. Closes with impressive intensity and power, leaving a sexy floral note behind.
