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.

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

    Snoothrank:

    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

    Snoothrank:

    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

    Snoothrank:

    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 ...

  • Vacqueyras Jean Marie Arnoux 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This is a nice blend and it's a great value for the money. Decant for at least a half hour before serving. Give it a few more years to age in you have the patience. Read More

  • Seigneur de Lauris Vacqueyras 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Great wine. Waxy at first. After an hour, smooth, with a bouquet of graphite, earth, and fruit. Soft full mouth feel of fruit. Not a long lingering finish. Very nice wine. Read More
