Domaine Montirius Vacqueyras Le Clos 2013
Wine Advocate 89
The top release from Vacqueyras is the 2013 Vacqueyras le Clos, which comes from a single plot of vines on clay soils, and is equal parts Grenache and Syrah. As always, it’s completely destemmed, sees only native yeast and is raised all in concrete tanks.

The top release from Vacqueyras is the 2013 Vacqueyras le Clos, which comes from a single plot of vines on clay soils, and is equal parts Grenache and Syrah. As always, it’s completely destemmed, sees only native yeast and is raised all in concrete tanks.

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW
Outstanding value from Northern Rhone
"Coming from a region that demands $30 plus price tags, this Syrah Grenache blend is a home run for $19.95. Because of the use of all concrete tanks, the nose is extremely aromatic and the fruit really shines through. You get hints of raspberries and leather that lead to herb and more red fruit on the palate. With a silky mouth feel and long lingering finish, this medium bodied French blend is the perfect wine to please a crowd without breaking the bank this fall."
