A true blockbuster, the Grenache-dominated 2012 IGP Vaucluse comes all from clay and limestone soils around Rasteau, and spent 24-36 months in a combination of foudres and demi-muids. Loaded with notions of black cherries, black currants, crushed rocks, licorice and roasted herbs, this beauty is full-bodied, voluptuous, sexy and gorgeously textured. And while it has tons of richness, it also has notable purity, good freshness and ripe tannin that frame the finish nicely. It’s already hard to resist, but it will continue to knock your socks off for another 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Very expressive right out of the bottle with deftly balanced notes of dark fruit, crushed violets, loam, black pepper and cured meats. On entry this is savory in profile with an abundance of dried herbs, leather and spice that lead into a sleek, mineral-driven mid-palate that closes with ripe, opulent black and blue fruits. This is still young and tightly wound so it should benefit from a few years in bottle of time in a decanter. Pleasurable and enjoyable now, this will continue to improve for another 10+ years.
