A solid, well-made Vacqueyras, significantly better than the '09 I tried last week, which must have been an off-bottle. Dominated by smooth ripe red fruit (grenache), this red is actually quite approachable and at its peak right now. It doesn't seem to have as much of that South Rhone character (garrigue, black pepper) as other reds from the region (or even from their own Le Clos bottling) nor the depth of the best wines in the region (hence the sub-90 pt score), yet the wine is certainly very delicious. Drink now or over the next couple of years. Tasted Nov 14/14.
