    Winemaker's Notes:

    The robe has great depths. On the nose, black fruit with a touch of licorice and very elegant spicy notes. The mouthfeel is full and fleshy with long-lasting fruit flavors. A blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Vacqueyras (70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault) exhibits a dark plum/ruby color, serious density and concentration and classic Provencal aromatic and flavor profiles of garrigue, licorice, kirsch, blacker fruits and hints of earth and truffles. One of the three lots that will go into this wine showed some oak, which does not make sense given the fact that the wine is aged in cement. Perhaps its sappy character was from the old vines. Domaine La Garrigue's Vacqueyras have a very impressive track record for aging up to 10 years, so I don’t think there will be any problem as they are loaded with density and extract and have good serious structure without being astringent or overbearing. Range: 90-93

    The Wine Advocate

    Bright purple. Perfumed scents of blackberry, cherry-cola, anise, violet and incense. Broad and palate-staining, with sweet dark fruit compote flavors and an exotic floral pastille element. Turns spicier and smokier with air and finishes with very good sweetness and velvety tannins.
    Range: 88-90

    2.5? There's something in the finish that I can't put my finger on, but I'm not crazy about it.
