Winemaker Notes

Bright violet. Sexy, spice-tinged aromas of ripe dark berries, cherry compote, potpourri and smoky minerals. Juicy and perfumed in the mouth, offering sweet black raspberry and floral pastille flavors that tighten up slowly with air. Shows very good depth without undue weight, and finishes very long and spicy, displaying smooth tannins and a repeating floral note.

Blend: 55% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 93
(raised in a 65/35 combination of concrete vats and barriques) Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. Heady aromas of red and dark berry liqueur, incense and smoky minerals, joined by a hint of white pepper that builds in the background. Supple, broad and sweet, offering concentrated blackberry, boysenberry and floral pastille flavors firmed by a spine of juicy acidity. The impressively long, supple finish features a bright, spicy quality and slow-building, even tannins.
Range: 91-93

Domaine De La Verde, France
The estate is located on the plateau de garrigue, west of the village of Vacqueyras in the heart of the Rhone Valley. Secluded in the woods and on the cliffs of the Ouvèze river, the vineyards average 40+ years of age and are rooted in sandy clay soils as a backdrop to the Dentelles du Montmirail and the slopes of mythical Mont Ventoux. The microclimate of La Verde plays an essential role: low rainfall and abundant sunshine allow grapes to reach their full maturity. The mistral, the iconic north wind of the Rhone, eliminates moisture from the vines, while the temperature differences during the growing season boost fine aromas and create balanced fruit. The wines of La Verde derive their finesse, their richness, and originality through the diverse and classical varieties of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault. A mosaic of grapes grown on the property who each express their personality and aromatic style. Grown with respect for the environment, each grape variety is picked, sorted, and vinified separately in order to keep their peculiarity. Only after long months of aging are they assembled in search of the perfect balance. Prelude is aged in enamel-lined concrete tanks to preserve the freshness and purity of fruit. Dark berries, lavender, and cracked pepper are but a few characteristics of this juicy Rhone wine that is very difficult to resist once opened.

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.
