92pts James Suckling

Deep blackberry and pomegranate fruit with plenty of spice, plus some raw-meat and balsamic-vinegar character. Full-bodied and rich, but with a certain lightness of touch, thanks to the well-judged tannin extraction, this has tons of character and is so easy to enjoy. Long, very harmonious finish that says “drink me”! A classic Rhone GSM blend of grenache, syrah and mourvedre. Drink or hold.

Tasting Notes

Light and fresh with plenty of vibrant red and black cherry and a hint of raspberry. Garrigue herbs and spice on the nose but an uplifting freshness makes it very approachable.

Pair with poultry, beef in sauce, grilled red meats, cheese.

Winemaker Notes

Traditional fermentation takes place in temperature control tanks, the wines are then aged in French oak for 6 months.

Winery Notes

Nestled at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, this Provencal scrubland is swamped by sunlight and swept by the Mistral winds. It has produced richly concentrated grapes since the 14th Century. These fruity and powerful wines are a symphony of flavors and fragrances which were raised to the prestigious level of Cru des Côtes du Rhône since 1990.

Marc and Jean-Francois Arnoux are the newest generation to carry on their family’s long history at this traditional Domaine that sits next door to the old Vacqueyras church. The family’s history in Vacqueyras dates back to 1731 and vineyard holdings are now 41 hectares in total, with additional volume supplemented with growing partners who have supplied the family for decades. Always complex and interesting, Arnoux’s offerings consistently over-deliver for us, this is a producer we’ve been working with since our early days.
