2018 Chateau Mazane Vacqueyras Rouge - 91-93 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Similarly colored, the 2018 Vacqueyras Château Mazane offers a more focused, firm, structured style. While I normally prefer the Grande Garrigue cuvée, this might be a step up in 2018, and it certainly shows more structure and length. A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre, brought up in tanks and barrels, it’s going to be one of the gems in 2018."

2017 Chateau Mazane Vacqueyras Rouge - 91+ PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Mostly Grenache (there’s 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre), the 2017 Vacqueyras Château Mazane offers classic ripe cherry and darker berry fruits as well as plenty of garrigue, pepper, violets, and earthy aromas and flavors. It stays straight and focused on the palate, with plenty of concentration and structure, and is going to keep for 8-10 years."

2016 Chateau Mazane Vacqueyras Rouge - 94 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Slightly lighter on its feet, with more red fruits, cassis, garrigue, spice, and subtle minerality, the 2016 Vacqueyras Chateau Mazane stays incredibly light and graceful on the palate and has incredible class. Nuanced, elegant and lightly textured, yet brilliantly concentrated and full-bodied, it's another undeniably delicious, seriously good wine from this estate. The blend is 60% Syrah, 30% Syrah and the rest Mourvèdre and it has a decade of terrific drinking ahead of it."

wine enthusiast 91 pts"Sun-baked plum and berry aromas are accented by savory hints of charcuterie and dried herbs here. Fleshy black and red fruit flavors are concentrated and plush but elegantly restrained, balanced by fresh acidity. It's a voluptuous but well-integrated wine, marked by raspy, firm tannins that should melt over the next 3–5 years. - Anna Lee C. Iijima"

wa90"Unlike the 2015, the 2016 Vacqueyras Chateau Mazane skirts the very edge of over-ripeness. It does show lovely floral garrigue notes, but the fruit is also plummy and, at times, veers into the realm of warm chocolate fudge. Full-bodied and richly concentrated, I'd still opt to drink this over the near term. - Joe Czerwinski"

wa91"The 2015 Vacqueyras Chateau Mazane, a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, was matured mostly in vat and boasts layers of elegant yet super ripe fruit and a dusting of ground cinnamon and cracked pepper. It's full-bodied and creamy in texture on the palate, ending with some tough, chewy tannins and a touch of warmth. Drink it over the next 5 years.- Joe Czerwinski"
