Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The Vacqueyras les Christins comes from 20 acres that are leased by the Perrin family and managed by the Beaucastel team. The vineyards are within the commune of Sarrians, south of the Dentelles de Montmirail, between Carpentras and Vaison-la-Romaine, and the vines have an average age of 50 years. Clearly a wine from a warm place, with an amber hue and a rich texture, the nose is of morello cherries, flowers and licorice. On the palate it shows an unctuous texture and is rich and concentrated.

Critical Acclaim

"Vivid ruby. Powerfully scented, complex bouquet of red berries, incense and minerals. Blackberry and cassis flavors are deep and sweet, with slow-building licorice quality on the back. The gently tannic finish is spicy and impressively long. Range: 90-92"
92 Points

"Dark, with a nice juicy beam of blackberry and crushed red currant fruit backed by graphite and dark licorice notes on the finish. This fleshes out nicely in the glass. Rock-solid."

The wine is somewhat similar to its northern neighbor, Gigondas, and occasionally even more rustic. Vacqueyras wine gives off the flavors of the earth where the vines grow - wild herbs, spice and rocky soil. Notable Facts Like other Southern Rhone...

Learn About Rhone Red Blends

The Rhone region of France has a delightful selection of red varieties. There are 22 grapes allowed in the Rhone AOC, about half of them red.
