Vacqueyras Wine


Vacqueyras is a village in the Southern Rhone that was the second after Gigondas to get its own appellation. The red wines must be at least 50% Grenache, with the rest comprised of Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsaut. A small amount of white and rose wine is also made. Especially as quality in the appellation has been increasing while prices have remained reasonable, it is a great place to explore for lovers of Chateauneuf du Pape.

    Fleshy, plummy nose, driven by black fruits. Plum, blackberry and some purple fruit. Also, blueberry and lavender. Nice, lush and fruit forward with pretty black and dark red fruit flavors along with some blue fruits. Good acid. Finishes in red fruits. Nice.89 pts.3/9/13 Read More

  • Chateau Chapelle St.-Arnoux Cotes du Rhone Millesime Vieilles Vignes Vacqueyras 2009


    A good wine but I am not the worlds largest Grenache fan. A touch hot. Fairly full bodied and rather dry although definitely has dark fruit flavors. Quality is good, no off flavors. A little anise, black berry, a bit of a mineral structure. Price is great $8.99 Read More

  • Montirius Vacqueyras Garrigues 2010


    This shows big olive, beef jerky beef jus and hoisin aromas on the nose over a base of jammy blackberry and sweet cherry fruit, accented with a hint of vanilla. Matte and extracted on entry, theres a lot of dark fruit and black pepper here in a muscular, focused style. This seems a touch closed today, though there is plenty of black fruit and m... Read More

  • Famille Perrin Vacqueyas les Christins 2010


    Inviting deep red (sanguineus) colour with spicey, meaty (ham sausage) blackberry nose. Excellent grip, with blackberry and sage notes on the palate. Syrah seems much in evidence, with more structure than (say) Rasteau or Vinsobres. Long finish with silky, grainy tannins. Could be aged for a few years, but is delicious now - especially with ...
