Our selection commes from the Quaternary alluvial terraces of the "Garrigues", in the Western section of the appellation. This thick layer of red clay provides a rich and generous aromatic pallet.
"This cuvée has been on fire of late and is up with the crème de la crème in just about every vintage. The 2017 Vacqueyras Laurus reveals a deep purple color as well as a big nose of blackcurrants, blackberries, peppery garrigue, and spice box. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, and with ripe tannins, it’s a fleshy, exuberant, downright sexy Southern Rhône that will keep for upwards of a decade." Jeb Dunnuck, September 2019
