A worthy comparison between the Vacqueyras and Cuvée Romaine can be made. Whereas the Romaine trades on a fruitier, more easy-going structure, the Vacqueyras is altogether different. Seeing an additional 6 months in tank it possesses a notable meaty quality with firmer tannins and a seriously dense core of black fruit and iron. Should you find yourself with a fairly large piece of beef or lamb on your hands you'd be hard-pressed for a more suitable assistant at the table.

Wine AdvocateTasted from tank, the 2017 Vacqueyras offers bold boysenberry fruit. It's full-bodied, rich and tannic, in need of further élevage and perhaps some bottle age as well. Interestingly, it doesn't include any Syrah this year.

Wine SpectatorA dried garrigue note leads off, followed by bitter cherry and pomegranate fruit flavors. Rooibos tea accents echo on the fresh finish. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Drink now through 2020. 448 cases imported.
