Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) A deep red wine, on the nose, with characteristics of the parcel: raspberry, liquorice and vanilla. In the mouth, the tannins are fine, silky and delicate. A lovely after taste. The aromas on the nose are found in the mouth, complimented by elegance, finesse and a lovely freshness.

Expert Reviews
  • Robert Parker
    (2009 Vintage) "The superb 2009 Vacqueyras Les Clos (an equal part blend of concrete-aged Grenache and Syrah) boasts a dense purple color along with notes of cassis, blackberries, charcoal, barbecue smoke and Provencal herbs. This meaty, opulent, full-bodied, powerful wine must tip the scales at 15+% alcohol. However, the alcohol, tannins and acidity are well-integrated in this forward, lush wine. It should drink well for 7-8 years given its level of concentration."
