A touch better with a slightly more serious feel the 2009 Domaine le Sang des Cailloux Vacqueyras Cuvée Lopy is named after the farm where the winemaker was born and is an old vine selection of destemmed 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah that's aged in 2-3 year old barrels for 12-15 months. It shows blacker styled fruits with loads of licorice charred earth leather and spice aromatics as well as a medium to full-bodied substantial texture fantastic length and a pure focused finish. This serious Vacqueyras should benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and drink beautifully for 10-12 years.

The top cuvee the 2009 Vacqueyras Cuvee de Lopy is composed of 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah from 75 year old vines. A stunning effort it boasts a black ruby hue along with notes of black raspberries black cherry jam camphor licorice truffle and roast beef. There is almost a grilled charcoal/bloody steak component to this intensely flavored full-bodied Vacqueyras. With sweet tannins a wonderful succulence and a full-bodied texture it should drink well for a decade or more. - Robert Parker

Smoke-accented dark berry aromas are complicated by violet cured meat and anise nuances. Offers sweet blackberry and cassis flavors with suggestions of candied flowers and licorice on the back end. Gentle tannins add grip and focus to the clinging sappy finish. I find this wine surprisingly approachable already.
