Alcohol/vol 14%
Deep purple color with mauve highlights and its powerful fruity fragrances sprinkled with spice. All the intensity of the nose may be found in mouth, on a background structured by healthy tannins full of masculinity and packed in a full body. The finish is long and opens some late pepper touches that define its specificity.
  • v89-90

Deep ruby. Powerful dark berry, licorice and cola aromas unfold slowly with air, taking on hints of cracked pepper and herbs. Chewy and tightly focused, offering bitter cherry and blackberry flavors and a touch of earthiness. Building tannins add grip to the nicely persistent finish, which echoes the licorice and cherry notes. All foudres.

Slightly more successful, the 2017 Vacqueyras Vieux Clocher offers ample peppery, savory red and black fruits, hints of leather and earth, medium body, good balance, and ample old-school charm and character. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years.
