The vineyards of Vacqueyras spread between garrigue and stones. This terroir gives birth to a wine with character, lots of red fruit aromas and elegant tanins.
This Vacqueyras is made from Grenache and Syrah grapes. The vines are located in the villages of Vacqueyras and Sarrians on soils of stony alluvial deposits and stony terraces.
Harvest at optimum ripeness. The wine is stored in vats immediately in order to preserve aromas. The fermentation on skins lasts for 3 weeks for an optimal extraction. The temperatures are strictly controlled (28°C maximum). The wine is racked off and undergoes malolactic fermentation. Then it is stored in vats during 8 months and bottled. It is then aged in bottle for 6 months.
Full and deep purple in colour, this wine develops a ripe-fruit character with a touch of mild spices. Full and generous, the mouth presents plenty of depth and persistence with harmonious tannins.
Food pairing : Roasted and grilled meat or cheese.
Service temperature : 16°C.
Ageing : 5 to 7 years.
Standing guard at the top of the village, the church of Vacqueyras is named after the apostle Bartholomew.
