Smoldering charcoal and black tea notes lead the way with fleshy supple notes of blackberry preserves mulled fig and spice. A roasted chestnut hint weaves subtly through the finish. This has good character. Drink now... Smoldering charcoal and black tea notes lead the way with fleshy supple notes of blackberry preserves mulled fig and spice.

A destemmed blend of 70% Grenache 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre and Cinsault the 2009 Domaine le Sang des Cailloux Vacqueyras Cuvée Azalais is the estate's traditional cuvee that's named each year after one of the three daughters of the winemaker. Aged for 6 months in foudre it delivers a textbook traditional bouquet of garrigue sappy underbrush leather and lavender that leads to a medium-bodied round supple wine that possesses sweet fruit excellent balance and a very drinkable profile. Always a solid traditional Vacqueyras this beauty should continue to shine for 7-8 years.

Deep ruby. Wild highly perfumed bouquet evokes red and dark berry preserves smoky herbs and and potpourri. Blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors show serious intensity and pick up cracked pepper and licorice nuances... Deep ruby. Wild highly perfumed bouquet evokes red and dark berry preserves smoky herbs and and potpourri. Blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors show serious intensity and pick up cracked pepper and licorice nuances with air. Fine-grained tannins add grip and shape to the long chewy finish which features a note of bitter cherry. This wine should age slowly.
