Located on the rocky plateau of ‘Des Roques’, this 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, Vacqueyras offers exceptional value and deserves to be much better known.
Warm aromatic spicy fruit flavours with just a touch of lavender and thyme in the background and a gorgeous powerful finish. Delicious with a steak or pot-roast chicken.

Beautiful garnet color, bright and dark. Powerful and generous nose evoking red fruits. Then come southern accents, fig, cinnamon and scrubland with a little musk. The structured and dense flesh dominates the attack on the palate and gives way to notes of jammy cherries, a little prune and laurel. A tannic web crosses the wine and lets us predict a lot of pleasure- 89 pts The Wine Advocate
