Vacqueyras Vieilles Vignes Tardieu-Laurent 2017

If Rasteau is flirtatious, Vacqueyras is more earthy and leathered – the Marlboro man, if you will. Whilst Vacqueyras can have a certain rusticity, half of this comes from sandy soils which, in combination with cool aspects, lend a silkiness to the tannins. 70% Grenache (over 60 years old), 20% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah (both 40 years old). 50% whole-bunch fermented. Violets and undergrowthy forest fruits on the nose. A firm sense of earth and a sweet leathered spice. The palate is more insinuating on the entry than the Rasteau, but tannic grip quickly accumulates in the mouth. This always needs long élevage and bottle ageing.
