jeb dunnuck logo 250"Deeper colored, the 2018 Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue offers plenty of spicy characteristics as well as dark fruits and classic peppery garrigue. It’s medium to full-bodied, has wonderful fruit, offers ripe tannins, and is just a smoking Vacqueyras with loads to love."

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Compared to the Château Mazane release, the Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue is always more plush and soft, and the 2017 has sexy, ripe, mouthfilling levels of fruit as well as plenty of peppery garrigue and earth aromas and flavors. It’s complex, has a classic, old-school style, offers loads of character, and is a smoking value. It too is ideal for drinking over the coming 8-10 years."

2016 Alain Jaume Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue - 92 pts - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The Jaume brothers have produced a classic 2016 Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue based on 60% Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre, Syrah, and very old vine Cinsault. Dark fruits, garrigue, crushed rock-like minerality, and ample spice notes give way to an ultra-classic, balanced 2016 that has a great mid-palate and sweet tannin. Drink this layered, pleasure-bent effort over the coming 7-8 years."

2014 Alain Jaume Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue - 92 PTS - W&S

wine and spirits logo 250"This is named both for the Plateau des Garrigues, and expanse of limestone and clay covered in galets roulés just north of Sarrians, as well as for the fragrant brush that grows among the stones. Those scents are front and center in this wine, bringing freshness to its dark, gravelly fruit. It feels like it was grown in a forest, the fruit ripe but cool, pristine in its balance."
