Description

This wine Vacqueyras from La Maison Lavau comes from directly west-facing parcels located on the plain of Vacqueyras.

VINEYARDS AND TERROIR
The Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre vines are 35 years on average and planted on good draining alluvial and sandy soils.

GRAPE VARIETIES
Grenache noir (50%) Syrah (40%) Mourvèdre (10%)

PRODUCTION
The grapes are entirely de-stemmed and placed in temperature controlled vats for around 24 days with two rack-and-return operations at the start of fermentation, followed by two pumping-over operations per day. 60% of the wine is aged in vat, and 40% in 450L barrels previously used for 1 or 2 vintages, for a period of 12 months, before being blended with the vat-aged wine.

TASTING NOTES
Great finesse on the nose, wich releases a mixture of red fruit, fig and soft spicy note. On the palate, the wine shows great elegance and a lovely weave of red fruit and very fine tannins.
