Fleshy and plump on the palate with firm tannins and attractive richness of black fruits, especially the cherry. Delicate mouth, with some touches of pepper and garrigue notes, very pleasant finish. A typical south wine, balanced and solar.

Ripe but pristine blackberry flavors are brightened by a cool crush of minerality in this succulent, sunny red. A Grenache-dominant blend accented with Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault, it's full bodied but full of zest and zip. The finish is marked by a penetrating grip of fine, taut tannins. Approachable already the wine should drink well through 2027.

Moving to the reds, the 2017 Vacqueyras Cuvée Du Château is also a beauty. A blend of 70% Grenache and 10% each of Mourvèdre, Syrah, and Cinsault, aged in tank and demi-muids, it boasts a deep purple color as well as rocking aromatics of red and black fruits, toasted spice, and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, it's elegant and has fine tannins as well as plenty of fruit. Drink it over the coming 6-8 years.
