Vignerons de Caractere Syrah Grenache 2008

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

This familiar 50/50 red blend now hails from a Vin de Pays in southern France known as Portes de Mandeacute;diterranandeacute;e. Plump and expressive, the wine bursts with dark cherry and plum flavors.

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

A great French country wine showing off wonderful raspberry mineral and black olive notes. Moderate use of oak lends an added aromatic dimension of leather and coffee beans to this beautifully balanced red.

An elementary introduction to the grapes of the Rhône: Syrah and Grenache. Lighter in style, with fruit reminiscent of crushed strawberries and raspberry. An easy drinker, great before dinner.

This offers nice black cherry, tobacco and spice notes, with a note of garrigue defining the finish. Drink now.
