Vignerons de Caractere Gigondas Cuvée Prestige 2010

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Spicy, brambly red berry nose with aromas of white pepper and salty minerals. Some light brush. Crushed stone. Vibrant acid on the palate with bright, youthful berry fruit. Flavors of bramble, blackberry, raspberry, some plum, lavender and violet with light hints of pepper and minerals. Salty, savory finish. Zesty red berry lingers. Nice wine. Great value and approachable now. 88 pts. 3/4/13

The early 21st century has definitely been marked by the information revolution. The world is now a village, and visitors to Vacqueyras are no longer limited to our close European neighbours. The Vignerons de Caractère have always been forward-looking. For instance, we are taking a completely new look at our boutique to make it easier for visitors to discover our wines and our terroir. After extending our cellars, we are now pleased to have an area over 500 m² to age our bottled wines and welcome wine lovers. However, our ambitions do not stop there because in 2009 we are opening a restaurant in the heart of our premises, in a cellar wine formerly used to age wine in barrel. It is now more easier than ever to share our passion for wine and our rich, but fragile terroir, and to highlight the superb products found in our region. To open a bottle of Vacqueyras it to share the love and devotion of 80 families for their vines and precious soil, and the atmosphere of a village famous for its poetic charm. Read less
