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.

  • Seigneur de Lauris Vacqueyras 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I guess this wine is consistent. I agreed with other reviews on this wine, then realized they were from 2000 not the 2009 that I was drinking. I had to let it sit for an hour to let the waxiness dissipate. After decanting, it has a nice balance of graphite, fruitiness and that round, earthy/loamy taste/feel.I bought this to compare it to 2009... Read More

  • Domaine du Grand Montmirail Vacqueyras 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The Montmirail Vacqueyras was ripe yet so beautifully balanced that it was a pleasure to drink and probably went down "too" easy. The nose showed ripe red and black fruits with sweet spice, stone and chalky minerals. On the palate it was full-bodied yet juicy with sweet dark fruits, roasted red meats, licorice and a hint of oak. Dark fruits satu... Read More

  • Montirius Red Rhone Blend Côtes du Rhône 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A ripe, pleasant wine with plenty of intensive dark fruit from the syrah and grenache. Touches of liquorish and garrigue (herbal greens). A wine which is easy to like and which should grow in the glass over an evening. The couple making this wine are fifth generation winemakers and true biodynamic converts. When I met them at RAW in London, they... Read More

  • Château des Tours Vacqueyras Reserve 2004

    Snoothrank:

    On first opening the nose features sour peat, strawberries, leather and tobacco leaf. The palate also shows tobacco leaf, black tea, strawberries with a spicy cedar cigar tobacco leaf finish. One hour later the nose shows rich red raspberry, black tea and spicy tobacco leaf. The palate is featuring tobacco leaf, dark berries, currants and cra... Read More

  • Domaine du Grand Montmirail Vacqueyras 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Opaque black plum hue, with pungent aromas of black fruits, wet leather and dried game; leading to richly extracted notes of blackcurrant, blackberries and black plums with a hint of cola and tea, over a long and focused finish. Grill some! Read More
