AOP Vacqueyras Red
- 16+/20 Jancis Robinson
Tasting«Dense nose with purple fruit and grapey notes. Firm tannins here with a backbone of freshness and good fruit core. Powerful and plush style – appealing.» Jancis Robinson, October 2020
Food & wine pairingsPairs nicely with a risotto with ceps (Porcini mushrooms) or cheese puff pastries.
2019, with its very unique climate, offers us once again a great vintage. Thanks to the favorable temperatures of February/March and the important water reserves generated by the heavy rains of autumn 2018, the vineyard resisted well to the heat and drought of the summer. The month of September, with its warm, sunny days and cool nights, allowed the grape bunches to develop harmoniously. At the time of harvest, the grapes were ripe and healthy. The quality of the vintage is exceptional, with red wines offering intense, ripe red-fruit aromas and round yet fresh flavours.
