Winemaker Notes

Deep colour, with an engaging nose of ripe, spicy aromas. Fresh on the palate, with notes of violet and bitter orange.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

Of the three village offerings from Tardieu-Laurent – the Vacqueyras Vieilles Vignes, the Rasteau Vieilles Vignes, and the Gigondas Vieilles Vignes – the 2009 Vacqueyras has the most fat and corpulence and is the most vivid and purest expression of Grenache. It is a 10- to 15-year wine.
Range: 91-93

Becomes more floral with air and finishes with notes of blackberry, vanilla bean and anise. This wine has put on weight and sweetness since I saw it last year.

They own no vineyards and don't buy... View More
