Les Collégiales – AOP Vacqueyras
Details of the wine
This Cru Vacqueyras is a blend of wines from various parts of the appellation with different terroirs: soils with river stones on the surface, zaffer, and deep clay. The Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre vines produce deep, powerful wine.
70% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre.
We respect viticultural and winemaking methods handed down from generations to make the most of Vacqueyras’s superb terroir. We select wines from the best plots after careful tasking by our cellarmaster. The wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats to preserve all the fruity aromas.
The nose is generous and aromatic, the sign of a great Vacqueyras. The bouquet features aromas of ripe fruit, blackcurrant coulis, strawberry jam, spice, and violets. The wine is quite smooth on the palate, with rich tannin and an attractive liquorice flavour. It also has a very long elegant aftertaste. Food-Wine matchs: Perfect with red meat, such as grilled steak, or simply as an aperitif enjoyed with friend. Serve at 18°C.
This wine is enjoyable young, but has an ageing potential of 6-7 years.
