About

90-93

"One of the most compelling wines in this very good portfolio is the 2009 Vacqueyras Jean-Marie Arnoux. From some of the estate's oldest vines, this blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre was aged in foudres and bottled without fining or filtration. Loaded with notes of sweet kirsch, licorice, camphor, incense and spring flowers, this dense ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied, multidimensional, powerful, long wine reveals superb equilibrium and intensity. It should age nicely for a decade."
