About

91-93

"(aged for 18 months in large oak vats) Deep magenta. Ripe dark berry, incense and spicecake aromas are complemented by suave floral and garrigue accents. Juicy, broad and smoky on the palate, offering intense black raspberry, boysenberry and apricot flavors that turn sweeter with air. Smooth, seamless and broad on the impressively long, floral-tinged finish, where gentle tannins provide shape and meld harmoniously with the fruit."

91 Joe Czerwinski - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Recently bottled, the 2015 Vacqueyras les Aubes is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah from two lieux-dits. This medium to full-bodied wine is bright, crisp and long, with black cherry fruit and cinnamon-clove spice accents. Decant if drinking it soon to allow some post-bottling funk to dissipate."
