Description

Vacqueyras domain is located near the Gigondas Appelation Controllée, and is a 22 acres vineyard, aged more than 50 years old, and a pebble soil.

It offers a predominance of Grenache grapes, and this particular vintage is made of 60% of Black Grenache, 30% of Shiraz, and 10% of Mourvèdre. Most of the harvest maturates in vats, and 30% maturates in French Oak barrels. The wood barrel flavors do not overwhelm any of the Jaume wines, but magnifies their qualities.
