Made from a 60% Grenache, 40% Syrah blend, this stunning Vacqueyras 2015 is medium to full bodied, with a beautiful balance of berry fruit and spices. It is rich, lively and elegant all at once.  We don’t want to sound like we like this wine but it is a brilliant example of a quality Rhone wine.

Wine Advocate says ‘the 2015 Vacqueyras combines lovely ripe cherries with tarry, plummy notes. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a long, supple finish and should drink well for up to decade’   91 points’

A terrific estate, Domaine de la Charbonnière is run with considerable passion by the Maret family, with the young Veronique Maret taking over the wine-making reins in the early 2000’s. All their wines are exceptional examples of the region.

The 2016 vintage is available at the same price – just add a note to your order and we’ll organise 2016 vintage instead (please allow a couple of extra days before collection).
Wine Advocate says ‘ 90-92 points – It’s full-bodied and creamy textured, with lovely raspberry and dried spice nuances’.

We also stock the slightly younger 2017 & 2018 vintages at a slightly cheaper price,  You can view 2017 & 2018 Vacqueyras here.
