jeb dunnuck logo 250"More elegant and balanced, with beautiful black raspberry and cherry fruits, spice, and garrigue, the 2016 Vacqueyras is elegant and supple on the palate, with no hard edges. It has more elegance and is slightly better balanced than the Vieilles Vignes cuvée, but both are outstanding wines. The blend of this classic cuvée is 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre."

2016 Colline Saint Jean Vacqueyras Rouge - 91-94 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"I loved the 2016 Vacqueyras from Colline Saint Jean and this tiny Vacqueyras estate has turned out a sensational 2016. Based on 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and the rest Mourvèdre, it’s full- bodied, concentrated, ripe and polished and offers terrific notes of dark fruits, violets, and earth. Brought up in foudre and concrete tanks, it’s going to be a hidden gem."

2015 Colline Saint Jean Vacqueyras Rouge - 90-92 PTS - WA

wa"What looks to be a smokin’ good wine, the 2015 Vacqueyras dishes up tons of smoked herbs, licorice, spice and ripe dark fruits in a rounded, impressively textured style. Made from 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and a splash of Mourvèdre, mostly destemmed and aged in concrete (there’s a small part in foudre), it should provide tons of pleasure over the coming decade. - Jeb Dunnuck"

Intense cherry and red berry aromas pick up hints of woodsmoke, anise and cracked pepper with air. Spicy and focused on the palate, offering fresh raspberry and floral pastille flavors underscored by a vein juicy acidity. Closes smoky and taut; dusty tannins build slowly and frame the juicy fruit. - Josh Raynolds"

2013 Colline Saint Jean Vacqueyras Rouge - 89 PTS - WA

"wa89The 2013 Vacqueyras is borderline outstanding and has pretty peppery notes of menthol, Christmas spice, plum and black raspberries in a medium to full-bodied, rounded and forward style on the palate. Made from 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and a splash Mourvedre, it’s one of the more fruit forward efforts in the vintage and has lots to like."
