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.

  • Domaine de la Jaufrette Vacqueyras 2001

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed black licorice, earth, violets and hints of bacon fat. On the palate, I found wild blackberry, tart black cherry and minerals. The finish was medium long and pleasantly fresh with blackberry fruit. Read More

It was rated -90 points- Josh Raynolds- International Wine Cellar.Hints of fig and blackberry fruit, smooth with lavender and silky tannins bring a great bold finish to this wine.

  • Perrin Vacqueyras les Christins 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Continuing my bottom-up exploration of the Southern Rhone 2007 vintage, I move to Perrin et fils Rasteau. I may be missing something here, but there is nothing particularly engaging on the nose - perhaps a hint of violet and plum sauce? The color is good and upon entry, there is a smooth, lacy tannin and plum hitting mid-palate with good balan... Read More
