Domaine la Garrigue Vacqueyras 2007
"The Bernard family, who also owns the endearing hilltop restaurant called Les Florets that overlooks Gigondas, has turned out a classic Provence -styled effort, their 2007 Vacqueyras.

What more to say. 07' is the best vintage in long time for Rhone and every one I've had has proven this. Southern Rhones hold a special place in my heart and this Vacqueyras was a true pleasure. The pallet was a good 30 seconds of bliss.
