Domaine Longue Toque Vacqueyras 2015 14.5%
73% Grenache 27% Syrah. Grenache matured in vats while the Syrah was aged in barrel.
A different terroir expression from this perfumed Vacqueyras which is always more elegant than the powerhouses of Gigondas and Chateauneuf. Deep colour, plush ripe fruits on the nose and palate, yielding up blackberry, cinnamon and cooked fruits. The palate is refined, despite the warmth, displaying gentle tannins overlaid by fine fruits and a long satisfying finish.
“…inky coloured…spice peppery herbs, creamy licorice and ample dark fruits emerge from this medium to full-bodied, ripe, beautifully textured Vacqueyras that will drink nicely through to 2025.”
