Of the three village offerings from Tardieu-Laurent - the Vacqueyras Vieilles Vignes the Rasteau Vieilles Vignes and the Gigondas Vieilles Vignes - the 2009 Vacqueyras has the most fat and corpulence and is the most vivid and purest expression of Grenache. It is a 10- to 15-year wine.

Sexy aromas of black raspberry cherry-cola Moroccan spices and lavender. Vibrant and precise on the palate offering energetic red and dark berry flavors and a late note of bitter chocolate. Becomes more floral with air and finishes with notes of blackberry vanilla bean and anise. This wine has put on weight and sweetness since I saw it last year.
