Domaine La Bouissiere Vacqueyras 2007
Bright ruby. Highly spicy aromas of fresh red berries, white pepper, cinnamon and lavender. Lush raspberry and cherry flavors coat the palate, enlivened by tangy minerals. Turns sweeter on the finish, which strongly repeats the floral note. This wine's abundant fruit will give it great early appeal. This blend of 64% grenache and 18% each of syrah and mourvedre will be the only cuvee of Vacqueyras made here in 2007. It's 16% alcohol but there's no heat or excess fat. 91-93
Dark and exotic, with lots of roasted cocoa, fig and black currant aromas and flavors, laced with smoked apple wood, tar and melted licorice. Stays rounded and fresh, with the fruit and minerality shining through on the finish. Drink now through 2013.
