Tasting notes
Aged in new French oak this powerful yet balanced red presents ripe, spicy elements of fruit, meat and underbrush with notes of violet and bitter orange that give it lift and acidity.

Of the three village offerings from Tardieu-Laurent the Vacqueyras Vieilles Vignes, the Rasteau Vieilles Vignes, and the Gigondas Vieilles Vignes the 2009 Vacqueyras has the most fat and corpulence and is the most vivid and purest expression of Grenache. It is a 10- to 15-year wine.
 Wine Enthusiast 92 points (Oct 2013)
This wine epitomizes the lush ripeness of the 2009 vintage, yet does so without going over the top into dried fruit. Instead, it delivers brandied cherries spiced with cinnamon and clove, plus a touch of chocolate. It’s full bodied and maybe just a bit warm, but the long finish is textured like fine suede. Drink now-2020.

Technical notes
(80% Grenache/20% Syrah). The 65+ year old Grenache is sourced from vineyards in Les Gres, Les Pendants and Le Plateau de Sarrians.
