Winemaker Notes

The bouquet of ripe fruit, blackcurrant coulis, strawberry jam, spice, and violets shows that this is a great Vacqueyras. Smooth and rich on the palate with soft tannin that marries well with the liquorice flavors. Very long aftertaste confirming this wine's character and elegance.

This Vacqueyras makes a perfect accompaniment to veal chops with rosemary, or even chocolate mousse. Best served at 18°C. This wine is enjoyable young, but has an ageing potential of 5 to 7 years.

Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre

Wine Spectator
Fleshy and forward, with succulent plum and blackberry fruit laced with black tea and dark chocolate notes. This has a nice smoldering finish. Drink now through 2011.

Vigerons de Caractere, Vacqueyras, Rhone, France
Welcome to Vacqueyras, nestled at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail in the heart of the Rhone Valley. A group of men and women, passionate about winemaking and guided by years of experience, craft wines of character from this outstanding terroir.

The early 21st century has definitely been marked by the information revolution. The world is now a village, and visitors to Vacqueyras are no longer limited to our close European neighbors. The Vignerons de Caractère have always been forward-looking. After extending our cellars, we are now pleased to have an area over 500 m² to age our bottled wines and welcome wine lovers. However, our ambitions do not stop there because in 2009 we are opening a restaurant in the heart of our premises, in a cellar wine formerly used to age wine in barrel. It is now more easier than ever to share our passion for wine and our rich, but fragile terroir, and to highlight the superb products found in our region.

To open a bottle of Vacqueyras is to share the love and devotion of 80 families for their vines and precious soil, and the atmosphere of a village famous for its poetic charm. ..
