Red Wine /// Grenache & Friends // Southern Rhone / France
Vacqueyras is a lesser known vineyard in the Southern Rhone that sits on the valley floor with slightly shallower soils dominated by limestone. La Roubine make one of the very best wines of the appellation. It is said Gigondas offers more class and sophistication than Chateauneuf-du-pape and there may be a day the same is said of Vacqueyras vis-à-vis Gigondas.

Gorgeous. Not as gregarious as the Sablet or the Gigondas, but it is a picture of refinement and fine Southern Rhone fruit. Leaning toward a red fruit spectrum, there is a spicy and zesty intensity that is unique to the other wines. It shows great evolution in the glass. I didn't decant and enjoyed the time I had with it, treating it like a Burgundy rather than a Rhone. Swirl, sniff, sip, repeat. This was my favourite of the three this year. All sophisticated class and style. STSWine
