Domaine L'Espigouette Vacqueyras
The nose is open, with scents of bay leaf, rosemary and fresh thyme. Then an explosion of black fruits. Nice balance between power and gluttony. Typical of the great successes of the Rhône Valley in this vintage. A light woody note that perfects the complexity.
The palate is powerful, voluminous. The sweetness, from the start, gives a lot of breadth and voluptuousness. It has a beautiful tannic structure but the tannins are well coated, they give relief. The balance between potency and freshness is perfect.
Food Pairing: Wonderful with lamb with crunchy vegetables or a nice piece of beef.
Grapes: 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre
