2011 Alain Jaume Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue - 90 PTS + Editors Choice - WE

Wine Enthusiast 90 Pts"A perennially attention-worthy wine, the Jaume family's Grande Garrigue Vacqueyras combines bold black cherry fruit with spicy notes suggestive of licorice root and bay leaf. It's full bodied and round in the mouth, but the fruit remains fresh, ending on a mouthwatering note of acidity. Drink now–2018. - Joe Czerwinski"

2011 Alain Jaume Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue - 91 PTS Best Buy - WA

Wine Advocate 91 Pts"The outstanding Alain Jaume 2011 Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue is primarily Grenache blended with smaller quantities of Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault from the high Les Garrigues plateau. Sweet black cherry aromas intermixed with licorice, loamy soil and Provencal herbs are followed by a full-bodied, opulent, decadently rich wine that should drink well for 3-4 years. Vacqueyras continues to over-deliver as an appellation. - RP"

2012 Alain Jaume Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue - 89-92 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 92 Pts"Representing a superb value, the Alain Jaume 2012 Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue is a tank-aged blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre. It exhibits gorgeous notes of black raspberry, ground herbs, violets and pepper, medium to full-bodied richness and an overall rich, layered personality. More than a little impressive, it should have a solid 7-8 years of longevity. Drink now-2020.- JD"

2013 Alain Jaume Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue - 88-90 pts - WA

wa300"Another success from this team is the 2013 Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue, which is made from 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre that was brought up all in stainless steel. Offering loads of fruit, a beautiful, supple and hedonistic texture and surprising depth and richness, it will drink beautifully on release and evolve quickly. - Jeb Dunnuck"

2013 Alain Jaume Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue - 90-92 pts - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Ruby-red. Bright, highly perfumed aromas of red berry liqueur and garrigue, with a smoky top note building slowly. Tangy, precise raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show good energy and back-end lift. Finishes clean, focused and spicy, with silky tannins and resonating red berry character. This suave, fruit-forward wine bears a strong resemblance to a ripe Pinot Noir. - Josh Raynolds"
