Winemaker's Notes

This 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre blend has a deep purple color which erupts in the mouth, giving you a strong bouquet of red fruit embellished with hint of spices. In the mouth you'll find a fullness of volume structured by elegant tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"I loved the 2010 Vacqueyras Jean-Marie Arnoux, which is 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre aged six months in large wood foudres. It exhibits a dense purple color and a more evolved style than most 2010s, with lots of forest floor, underbrush, spring flowers and blue and black fruits. Dense and luscious with sweet tannin and decent acidity, it should drink well for 5-6 years.

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...
