big nose of blackberries on the nose....very smooth and subtile tannins with bold acidity leads to a long lasting finish.
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
External Reviews for Domaine du Grand Prieur Vacqueyras
Deep, dark, rich and powerful, the Domaine Grand Prieur Vacqueras is big and bold, with ripe blueberry and black cherry flavors backed up by the spicy gaminess I love so much in these wines. Unbelievably delicious and well-structured, I think the 2009 vintage shall prove to be as good, if not better, than the famed 2007s.
