Of the 28ha of vineyards, 6ha are in the AOP Vacqueyras. The different plots are spread out between Sarrians and Vacqueyras, on two distinctive terroirs producing elegant & structured wines.
55% Grenache - 45% Syrah
The Grenache grapes come from gentle slopes, made of safres and Miocene marls, covered with colluvium, to the south and west of the appellation. The Syrah grapes are from the alluvial terrace of the "Garrigues", covered with pebbles from the Quaternary period, on the western side of the appellation. These natural elements bring balance and finesse of tannins as well as a complex aromatic range going from raspberry to violet through spicy touches of licorice and white pepper.
"The 2016 Vacqueyras is a 55-45 blend of Grenache and Syrah, aged in tank. Attractive leather and dark fruit notes on the nose lead into a full-bodied wine that's creamy and supple, with plummy fruit and hints of cinnamon and clove." Joe Czerwinski - 31 Oct 2018 - Robert Parker Wine Advocate
