Definitely superior to the '09, the fulsome 2010 Vacqueyras represents excellent value for money. Opaque ruby in...

Delightfully floral nose. Firm but fine tannic structure, with enjoyable complexity on the palate and certainly no paucity of fruit. This may be best after a few years in the dark.

A mellowing Vacqueyras, quite deeply coloured and densely flavoured. Very ripe dark berry fruit, almost pruney/jammy almost veering into overripe territory. Hints of spice and herbs on the finish. The dry finish and good acidity keep it it from becoming a Barossa Valley red. Very enjoyable. Tasted March 2016.
