"The 2006 Vacqueyras (80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre) is also a special bottling for Eric Solomon. A ruby/purple color is accompanied by a sweet bouquet of black cherries, licorice, roasted Provencal herbs, and garrigue. Deep, full-bodied, and intense with beautiful purity, a layered mouthfeel, and a heady finish, it should drink nicely for at least a decade.
Readers should note that these cuvees are selected by the American importer, Eric Solomon, and are bottled earlier than those sold elsewhere in the world. Owned by the Bernard family, this is one of the largest (nearly 145 acres) and finest estates in Vacqueyras, so it is not surprising that both the 2006 and 2007 vintages performed well."
