En Primeur Vacqueyras Blanc Château des Roques 2017 is available for sale.
Château des Roques lies on the rocky plateau of ‘Des Roques’, a hamlet on the outskirts of Vacqueyras. Owned and run by the Seroulfamily since 1997, the estate is managed traditionally using natural fertilizers, tailored treatments and harvest is done by hand. Eclipsed to some extent by the wines from its more illustrious neighbours, Gigondas and Châteauneuf, Vacqueyrashas plenty to offer and deserves to be much better known.
“Limpid straw-yellow. Fresh pit fruit and floral aromas show impressive definition and pick up a suave mineral nuance with aeration. Silky and seamless in texture, offering intense peach and pear nectar flavors that deepen slowly on the back half. Finishes smooth and very long, with lingering spiciness and a sexy honeysuckle flourish.”
