Domaine La Verde Vacqueyras Prélude 2015

19.99 15.99



Cuvée Prélude is the introduction to the La Verde domaine, a classic Rhône blend of Grenache (55%), Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault.

This is unoaked but aged for 14 months in concrete tanks, light to medium bodied and marked by smooth savouriness and tightly knit tannins. The nose is expressive, initially more savoury elements of smoked meat, cigar box, leather and garrigue before opening up notes of morello cherry and orange peel.

Just sensational with roast lamb.

Producer: Domaine La Verde

Domaine de la Verde is a family-owned single clos of 32 hectares of vines in the Rhône Cru village of Vacqueyras, between Gigondas and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Hidden away in the woods, between the finely made lace of Montmirail and the mythical slopes of Mont Ventoux, the vineyard is rooted in stony clay-limestone terraces abutting the cliffs of the river Ouvèze.

Founded in 1888, the domaine was acquired by the Camallonga family in 1963, with third generation Nicolas Camallonga taking ownership of both the estate and wine making duties in 2012. From vine to bottle this is a tightly controlled affair with only four wines produced, all AOP Vacqueyras from within the La Verde lieu-dit. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault make up the bulk of the vineyards, with average vine age now in excess of 40 years.
