This is a pedal to the metal Vacqueyras that represents what the southern Rhone can do so well.
Grape Varieties: Grenache/Garnacha Syrah/Shiraz
Style: Rich, complex
Drink By: 2017
92 points: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Robert Parker)
The old vine Grenache (70%) and Syrah (20%), from 40-70 years old, give this cuvée a wonderfully pure, thick, black currant character with bitter chocolate and mint on the nose and in the mouth. This wine is dense and rich with sweet ripe fruit. Delightful drinking.
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, Oct 09: “The 2007 Vacqueyras Floureto is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre and Cinsault. It boasts a dense purple color to the rim as well as an exceptional bouquet of creme de cassis, licorice, meat juices, smoke, soy, and bouquet garni. The complex aromatics are followed by a wine with outstanding density, a superb, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a deep, rich, complete finish. This beautiful wine should drink well for 7-8 years." 92 points
Patrick Lesec's impressive collection of wines are from the most important villages in the Southern Rhône. They are in fact all estate-bottled wines, vinified in the cellars of the properties that Patrick Lesec has contracted to work with.Patrick makes great efforts to search out the finest terroirs, the best soils with old vineyards — and thus the finest sources of grapes — in each appellation. These are often growers who own parcels of the best sites, but who may not bottle wine under their own label.
