2012 La Grangeliere Vacqueyras
About this wine:
The terroir of Vacqueyras is located on the Southern part of the Dentelles de Montmirail.
Grenache and Syrah bunches chosen to produce this cuvée are selected on alluvium and gravely terraces where the typicity offers a lot of character combined with a fruity style. The final cuvée is a perfect combination of a fruity and a robust wine.
The full bodied wine is aged 9 months in barrels (50% in new oak) whereas the fruity one is kept in big oak casks to soften the tannins. The combination of both characters is very subtle: soft oaky taste and fruity scents. Fragrances of small red fruits develop in mouth a wide palate of spicy and peppery notes.
The pleasant taste of this "cru" will enhance the flavours of a leg of lamb with sage or cheeses... Drink at room temperature while young or within the next 5 years.
Grenache 80% - Syrah 20%
