2017 VINTAGE - 89 POINTS - Notes of blackberries, plums, violets, and flowery incense notes dominate the 2017 Vacqueyras, which is medium to full-bodied, forward, fleshy, and ready to go.

VINTAGE 2016 - 90 POINTS - Vivid ruby-red. Ripe, spice-tinged blackberry, licorice and cracked pepper qualities on the perfumed nose. Lively red and dark berry liqueur and spicecake flavors are lifted and sharpened by a smocky mineral flourish. Concentrated as well as energetic, finishing with very good persistence and subtle notes of candied flowers and musky herbs.

Vintage 2015: The nose is aromatic and relatively elegant. It reveals notes of cassis, boysenberry and slight hints of crushed black cherry associated with a discreet hint of zan, gar¬rigue, caramelization as well as an imperceptible hint of white pepper (in the background). The palate is fruity, fine, sleek, nicely juicy, racy and offers a slight mineral frame, a small suavity as well as a slight gour¬mandize. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy blueberry, black cherry and slight hints of ripe red fruits associated with woody hints, discreet hints of thyme, spices as well as an imperceptible hint of gray pepper (in the background). Tannins are well-built. Good length and persistence on notes of (very) ripe black fruits and liquorices.

vintage 2014 - UK: Steady dark red. The nose combines mulberry, big red berry fruit, with cooked plums, has a tidy curve of sweetness. The palate offers also sweet-notes, fluid raspberry fruit favors, with calm tannins in step, a small note of final freshness and a little cassis. This is doesn’t reach for the sky, but is trim and orderly. From mid 2016 – 2021-22
