Diner Grand vin du midi qui surprend
Un vin floral au nez, gras en bouche et bien équilibré, sur les fruits jaunes (ananas). Une amertume prononcée en finale lui enlève des points, mais ca reste un superbe vin. 92 pts

Father's Day Dinner (Woodstock, GA): Deep purple with bright rim; initially seemed Bretty on cork pull- revisited 3 hours later and no sign, wow this is great stuff, reeks of green and black olives, a myriad of herbs, lavender, violets, tar, mineral, almost seems like N. Rhone; on the palate much of the same notes but the Grenache really comes out, dark fruit, sour plum, berries, garrigue, Band-Aid, mineral, fairly caressing tannin; rustic in style but tons of great character, a beautiful bottle that really distinguishes itself from CdP or Gigondas, reminded me a bit like Cornas on the nose and the palate was a combination of good CdP and Gigondas; need to get more; 92+.

I think Vacqueyras does a bit better in these warmer vintages. Nice ripe fruit with softer tannins than neighboring Gigondas. Not sure this has the structure for super long aging, would drink up over the 2-4 years.

Dark, earthy with plenty of fruit. Not overly complex but flavorful, rich, simple but pleasant. Just a tad hot on the finish. Enjoyed it.

End of year sparkling wine tasting: Smoke, stalk, herbs and redcurrant on the nose. Nicely medium bodied, there is nice brightness to the fruit while still showing restraint. Nice.

Pourpre profond avec rebord grenat. Nez spectaculaire sur le fruit: cassis, cerise, beau boisé, graphite, épices, charmeur. En bouche, le vin est riche, multidimensionnel et enveloppant. Saveurs mûres de kirsh et de cassis. Tanins assez rudes, acidité vive et chaud en alcool. Plus impressionnant au nez qu'en bouche. Très très bon tout de même.

One-time favourite starting to tire, with acids loosing their freshness, alcohol taking over the balance and dark-plummy heaviness threatening. Drink up - it's all downhill from here.

A bunch of Rhone 2011: The most closed wine of the tasted group. Not sure whether this will shine more in 3 to 5 years. I have my doubts. Nevertheless extremely wellcrafted and more than enough interest to try and folow this wine from a great winemaker

This is fully mature. While the color is still holding, the quality of the nose and palate is faded. Some work is required to coax the perfumes and flavors (which run to the darker spectrum, with some brett). A simple table wine at this point, with better than expected acidity. 14,0% abv., drink now.

Audozed 2 hours; served non-blind over 2 nights. Suggest a 90 minute aeration in decanter if opening soon.

Lovely color bright and fresh, slightly closed complex nose, spicy fruit, very slightly rustic, more as a positive accent rather than negative. Full and fresh in the mouth with a wonderful acid balance and resolved tannins, no hint of brett, it finished with cranberry and slight edge of tannin. Still youthful but nicely developed, sometime this summer or fall coming to try again.

Ben's 50th B'day (Ben and Estella's place, Parramatta): aromas of crushed walnuts and slight figs, slight oxidised handling. Flavours of figs, walnuts and honey and, despite lacking acidity, the wine is quite fresh. Very nice.

Started out with cold blueberries and some aging aromas and barnyard. Paprika and a hint of newly unwrapped plastic flotation devices. The plastic smell takes over completely after few minutes and the wine turns undrinkable. even plastic and rubber on the palate together with utter lack of balance. Flaw!!

Always enjoy the wines from this producer. Smells good, tastes good and lingers on the palate. Just the right amount of garrigue. Wish we had more.....

This definitely needs a long slow ox to show its potential. After being open 18 hours, there was a nice bouquet of roses, bacon fat, bramble, and blackberry fruit. Rich on the palate with tastes of smoked meat , iron, and succulent dark fruit. These Vacqueyras wines in good vintages like these are a steal at under $40. Nicely integrated tannins even at this young age. I would expect greater complexity in the next few years.

This wine seems to be in a really awkward stage at the moment. The nose is far more giving than yesterday, with a little pepper, red meat and rose petal showing, but not a lot of primary fruit that i would expect. The palate is still dominated by a bitter aftertaste. It's a shame, i'd really love to like this wine, but it's not showing right now. NR, pending later assesment. It's not flawed i should mention, only very closed.

Closed like a clam, not giving a lot at this moment. Some bitter strawberries and raspberries, almost a green-ish touch. Some oak, chocolate and vanilla. It seems that the potential is there, but not showing at all. Looking forward to tasting the remaining half of the bottle tomorrow. NR at the moment.

Better than I had hoped after reading some uninspiring reviews years earlier. Bottle age has definitely smoothed this into a plush, fruit bomb style. Not my favorite Vacqueras, but not shabby, either. The finish a bit short, the alcohol poking out. Ripe red fruits and satiny smooth. Was exactly what I was looking for with my food pairing, but I tire of drinking it on its own. A Kermit Lynch selection, so you can't go too wrong. Glad i held it several years. No real sign of being past prime. I'd say another 2-5 years might be a safe window.

Very dark, even the edges have no signs of evolution. The nose is at that perfect place. Red raspberries, mineral and earth. It started with a bit of funk which blew off. Intense flavours and an intense still tannic finish.

I feel like I could go 94 to 95 but people way question my sanity. I will hold my last bottle but am tempted to open it soon to enjoy it at this point of development.

Had over two days. Day 1, quite closed, but very enjoyable. A hint of alcohols sticking out. On the second day that had blown over and the wine was even more generous, dark fruit, black raspberries, and a fresh sweet almost minty spiciness. Went great with lamb and bulgur salad, excelent food wine. 89 based on second day. Nice wine.

Nose of leather , saddle, smoked meat, and some brett which some may call funky but I like it in this mix. The game meat continues on the palate with black olives, stable, leather, licorice, black fruit, pepper and mineral notes. Medium bodied, elegant, and drinking very well now (?peak) but still some tannins to possibly transform the wine further in cellar.

Surprisingly fresh and lively still. From a bottle purchased at the domaine more than 10 years ago. Rather rich and full bodied. The 'usual' Southern Rhone notes of Raspberries, Blackberries and lavender. Soft tannins. Hard not to like this wine but the overall excitement level could have been better.
