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 mainly made from Grenache and Syrah grapes.
The vines are located in the villages of Vacqueyras & Sarrians on soils of 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 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 placed in vats during 12 months before bottling. Ageing in bottle for 6 months.
Brilliant color with purple highlights. Rich nose with aromas of cherry, olive and "garrigue". Elegant and silky palate with fruity notes and delicate tannins. A subtly spicy finish.
It will pair nicely with polenta with ceps or even a leg of lamb with "provençal" herbs. Enjoy it now and over the next 7 years.
Standing guard at the top of the village, the church of Vacqueyras is named after the apostle Bartholomew.
