DOMAINE DE L’ESPIGOUETTE - VACQUEYRAS GSM 2019

 

TASTING NOTES

Domaine de L’Espigouette Vacqueyras is dark red in colour, with deep purple reflections. Good clarity and good shine.

The nose is quite open, with scents of laurel, rosemary and fresh thyme. Then an explosion of black fruits with aeration (blackberry, candied cherry). Nice balance between power and delicacy. A slight woodiness that perfects the complexity. The mouth is powerful. Sweetness from the outset gives a lot of fullness and voluptuousness. It has a nice, well coated tannic structure that provide balance between power and freshness.

ABOUT

Vacqueyras is a local appellation (Cru) of southern Côtes du Rhône wines located in the Vaucluse. Its terroir is located at the foot and on the sides of the Dentelles de Montmirail massif, and extends over the communes of Vacqueyras and the Hautes Garrigues de Sarrians over an area of ​​1300 hectares.

The terroir of Vacqueyras, which is located at the bottom of the Piedmont of the Dentelles de Montmirail, extends in small hills and terraces towards the Ouvèze valley. In the town of Sarrians, high scrubland of rolled pebbles is home to the vineyard.

They only produce red wine in the Vacqueyras appellation. We have three and a half hectares in one piece. Their plot is located on the high scrubland of Sarrians and is marked by a soil with rolled pebbles. This type of soil allows heat to be stored during the day and returned to the plant at night.
