Vacqueyras 2014

AOP Vacqueyras Red


  • 90 pts Wine Advocate
  • 90-92 pts Vinous


Bright ruby colour, a nose of raspberry, blackberry and lavender along with a touch of vanilla from the oak aging. Smooth and silky on the palate, offering juicy flavours of red fruits and a lively, refreshing acidity. The finish is long and generous with persistent tannins and a lingering blue-fruit element.

Detailed information


After a somewhat damp and wet winter, Spring was particularly dry and warm. The vegetative cycle took a leap forward, hinting at a potentially early harvest. Then Summer arrived with quite a lot of rain and cool temperatures, slowing down the ripening process. Finally, an Indian Summer set in around the end of August/beginning of September, allowing the maturities to progress while maintaining very good acidity. A generous harvest which commenced on the 14th September for the Syrah and the 25th September for the Grenache.
