Winemaker Notes

A deep and brilliant purple color. This wine offers a powerful bouquet of red fruit, accented with delicate spicy notes. The wine is full-bodied, round and structured, but elegant silky tannins.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Along the same lines and decidedly gulpable, the 2012 Vacqueyras Jean-Marie Arnoux is a destemmed blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 5% other permitted varieties, that was aged 12 months in foudre. It gives up pretty spice, cedar, truffle and sappy herb-like qualities intermixed with sweet red fruits. Medium-bodied and lightly textured, with moderate concentration and solid focus, it is an elegant, possibly outstanding, effort to drink over the coming 4-5 years. Range: 87-90

Since 1717, the cultivation of the vine is perpetuated in our family. This tradition and this heritage has become a passion. Even today, we produce our wines in the greatest respect for ancestral traditions, to be able to offer and you return all the authentic flavors of our land. The homestead covers 40 hectares on the plateau Garrigues, a plateau to the west of the appellation, and extends to Chateauneuf du Pape. These soils are prone to low yields of highly concentrated grapes tannins and aromas.

Vacqueyras Wine

Rhone, France

View all products

This charming appellation within the Côtes du Rhône Villages was second only to Gigondas to earn its own village appellation status. Its wines may be red, rosé or white—though hardly any is white. Its high winemaking standards follow many of the same rules as Chateauneuf-du-Pape. But for Vacqueyras red wines, half of the grapes have to be Grenache and the remainder is usually a combination of Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault.

While they can be robust and rustic in style, typically a great Vacqueyras red combines delicate aromas with intense fruit and a bright, crisp texture. They certainly don’t lack any character and show an abundance of black cherry, wild berry, plum, fig, baking spice, and a touch of game or smoke.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
