How Good is Alain Jaume Grande Garrigue Vacqueyras?


Wine Evaluation of 2015 Alain Jaume Grande Garrigue Vacqueyras, Rhône, France

Rating: 89+/100

The Vacqueyras appellation is positioned proper subsequent to the Gigondas AOC, and never removed from Châteauneuf-du-Pape within the Rhone Valley wine area of France.

It largely stretches on Sarrians territory, the place is the well-known plateau named “Les Garrigues”. This space is made from clay and rocks and options stunning panorama of garrigue typical of the Mediterranean coast, a rugged dry panorama full of fragrant herbs.

The Grande Garrique cuvée by Alain Jaume is a mix of Grenache noir, Syrah, outdated Cinsault, and Mourvèdre aged in concrete tanks and Three-year-old oak barrels for about 14 months.

General Evaluation Notes & Tasting Impressions

This Rhone pink is available in a vivid pink shade of medium depth, fairly dense, however not overly so for a Vacqueyras.

The is fruity full of pink berry aromas, of the colourful and contemporary kind, raspberry and redberry. Extra importantly, it’s remarkably spicy that includes shiny white pepper tones that carry the fragrant profile drastically.

The palate is dry and fairly spherical and tender at first, giving an general impression of smoothness. The reasonably dense tannins although, acquire in granulosity from the mid-palate on to ultimately give a barely drying texture to the end.

Highly effective flavors of pepper and combined pink berries, make for an pleasing, fruit-driven, barely earthy pink with a dominant fruity generosity, mixed with a dry and acidic really feel, minty and grassy, considerably like basil leaf.

This could work wonders on grilled meats, barbecue, and wealthy roasted meat dishes.

Get pleasure from 🙂
