Alain JAUME - “Grande Garrigue” - 2016
Vacqueyras is located right next to Gigondas AOC.
It mostly streches on Sarrians territory, where is the famous plateaux named “Les Garrigues”. This area is made of clay and rocks. The beautiful landscape of the “garrigue” is typical of the mediterranean area. The wines itself smell the spices, the dried herbs…you will taste the “Garrigue” in your glass, welcome to Provence …
Grenache noir, Syrah, old Cinsault and Mourvèdre.
Winemaking & ageing
Traditional winemakeing methods, temperature controlled fermentation. Long soaking on the skins.
Ageing in concrete vats and 3 years old barrels. Bottling after 14 months.
Deep, intense hue. Aromas of fresh black fruit a little meaty, with dried herbs smells. On the palate, the richness of the tannins harmonizes with the smoothness of the wine. The finish is long, with spices aromas, licorice. A typical wine from this specific terroir called “Les Garrigues”.
Best between 1 and 7 years. To be poured around 17°C.
