Description

What a display of “Wild Fruits”!  Bravo 2016!  60% Grenache and 40% Syrah organically grown and harvested from 10-45 year old vines growing on vertical limestone strata and some clay.

“This is a terrific Vacqueyras estate and I love the 2016 fruit sauvage.  I suspect it is the finest vintage ever for this cuvee; offering a huge nose of blackberries, plums, orange rind, and violets.  It has full-bodied richness, a seamless, unctuous texture, and terrific purity of fruit.  Drink this beauty anytime over the next decade.” – 93 points, Jeb Dunnuck
