Winemaker Notes

Black cherry, licorice, and a subtle hint of tar lead to fine, polished tannins.

Ideal pairing with baked camembert, braised lamb, Persian pomegranate walnut stew.

COMMENTARY: One always has to love the value of Vacqueyras, especially when a wine is as good as the 2016 Domaine de Terme. TASTING NOTES: This wine is powerful, ripe, and lasting. The tannins are soft in this substantial wine. Its upfront aromas and flavors of lush black fruit and chalk should pair well with slowly-braised lamb. (Tasted: March 12, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Primary blueberry and black-plum flavors abound in this silky, comforting blend of Grenache (80%) and Syrah (20%). It’s a plush, full-bodied sip accented by a touch of dusty minerality and smoothed over by fine, feathery tannins. Immediately approachable, the wine should drink well through 2025.

Domaine du Terme, France
Located in the foothills of the Montmirail Mountains, Domaine du Terme is managed by Anne-Marie Gaudin and her father Rolland, who purchased their first vines in Sablet some forty years ago. Anne-Marie began making the wines in 1987 after earning her oenology degree in Mâcon. Her father, Rolland, who has also been the mayor of Gigondas for over a decade, still consults in the vinification and viticulture process. Anne-Marie believes one must be “flexible, pragmatic, and intuitive” to make quality wine, and have a good connection to the earth. Gaudin does not use any pesticides or herbicides as a matter of course, but not necessarily because she wants to be identified with the organic movement. She simply believes that the best grapes come from the best management of the vineyard. For all her wines, Anne-Marie only adds SO2 at fermentation, then not again, not even during bottling. As a result her wines are rich, textured, and exceptionally pure.

Vacqueyras Wine

Rhone, France

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.
