The 2017 Vacqueyras is a beauty and is based on equal parts Grenache and Syrah that had the Grenache brought up in tank and the Syrah in barrels. Deep plum-colored with meaty blackberry and plums fruits as well as lots of earthy, garrigue notes, this puppy is medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and textured. This estate has been on a run lately and 2017 looks to be no exception.” Jeb Dunnuck – September 2019

Detailed information


2017 is a promissing vintage of the past few years with wines that are particularly elegant and harmonious, with superb, concentrated aromas and a solid ageing potential. The weather conditions during the growing season were difficult and extreme, resulting in a challenging task at harvest time. The high temperatures and almost total lack of rainfall since Springtime brought the harvest date forward by almost 10 days in many regions. Although these extreme conditions impacted heavily on the size of the harvest, with one of the smallest in the last 60 years, the quality is exceptional.

Grape varieties

50% Grenache, 50% Syrah


Grenache grapes come from gentle slopes, made of safres and Miocene marls, covered with colluvium, to the north east of the appellation. Syrah grapes are from the alluvial terrace of the “Garrigues”, covered with pebbles from the Quaternary period, on the western side of the appellation. The whole offers balance and fine tannins as well as a elegant aromas of raspberry, violet with spicy touches of licorice and white pepper.


Harvest of Syrah grapes from 7th September and Grenache grapes from 20th September. In 2017, the exceptional ripeness of the fruit, allowed a very gentle extraction of tannins. The perfect control of the temperatures (25/26°C) during the fermentation and maceration (35 days) phases highlighted remarkably elegant red fruit aromas and flavours. Part of the cuvée is aged in barrels and in tanks for 11 months.
