"A blend of equal parts Grenache and Syrah, the 2007 Vacqueyras Le Clos was brought up in cement tanks. It exhibits gorgeous notes of kirsch liqueur, licorice, and smoked herbs, a full-bodied, fleshy mouthfeel, pure fruit, sweet tannin, and a long finish. Range: 90-93"
The Wine Advocate
"Deep red with a bright rim. Vibrant aromas of red and dark berries complemented by zesty minerals, garrigue and smoky bacon fat. Midweight raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are firmed by tangy minerals and given depth by a candied licorice quality. Manages to be rich and energetic at the same time, finishing with excellent cut and length. This is a 50/50 blend of grenache and syrah. Range: 92-93"
