Domaine Grandy Vacqueyras 2014
Full-bodied and flavoursome with a velvety mouthfeel.
We have stocked this wine for many years now, and it always offers consistent quality. This estate is now under the careful guardianship of La Cave Les Coteaux du Rhone who also make the perennially popular wine ‘Arbouse’. A blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre from vines planted on pebbly terraces in the Vacqueyras scrubland.

Aromas of white pepper, violets and whisps of smoke add complexity to fruit notes of plum, raspberry and blackberry. Full-bodied and flavoursome with a velvety mouthfeel. Ripe autumnal fruit and mocha flavours are framed nicely on the palate by an integrated acidity and a long spicy finish. Drink now to 2020+. Enjoy with braised pheasant.
"This wine is a blend of 60 per cent grenache, 20 per cent syrah and 20 per cent mourvèdre from vines planted on pebble-strewn terraces in the Vacqueyras AOC wine region in the heart of the southern Rhône region of France. It’s a full-bodied and muscular red with deep raspberry and black fruit notes with a spicy and almost peppery edge to it. Enjoy it now or keep for another two or three years" 15 Best Grenache Wines, John Clarke, The Independent
