About

92

Moving to the reds, the 2017 Vacqueyras is terrific and has a complex, lifted, perfumed style in its bright plum, cherry, violets, and sappy floral aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured and layered on the palate, it’s shows the ripe, sexy, Provençal style of the vintage beautifully. This cuvée is 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre, destemmed and brought up all in concrete tanks.

91 Wine Enthusiast

In this wine, elegant notes of charred earth and stone accent ripe but restrained cassis and mulberry flavors. A luscious but savory, firmly structured blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, it's lifted by swathes of sun-dried thyme and mint. Ready now, the wine should drink well through 2027.
