Robert Parker 90-93
"The 2009 Vacqueyras (70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault) exhibits a dark plum/ruby color, serious density and concentration and classic Provencal aromatic and flavor profiles of garrigue, licorice, kirsch, blacker fruits and hints of earth and truffles. One of the three lots that will go into this wine showed some oak, which does not make sense given the fact that the wine is aged in cement. Perhaps its sappy character was from the old vines. Domaine La Garrigues Vacqueyras have a very impressive track record for aging up to 10 years, so I dont think there will be any problem as they are loaded with density and extract and have good serious structure without being astringent or overbearing."
Rhone Report 91
"Always a solid wine, the 2009 Domaine La Garrigue Vacqueyras (80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, and 5% Cinsault aged all in concrete) delivers a textbook array of sweet red fruits, garrigue, red licorice, and flowers on the nose, with notable complexity and excellent freshness. Oozing Provencal character, with a medium-bodied, fresh, focused texture, good acidity, and loads of pure fruit, this outstanding Vacqueyras can be consumed now, or cellared for 5-8 years."
Outstanding value - This is a beautiful wine. Medium body, loads of flavors. Excellent value for the money.
