Le Seigneur du Raveil, Vacqueyras, France, 2016

£17.99

Vacqueyras is an Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) in the southern Rhone producing some fantastic value wines, usually more restrained than the likes of the famed Châteauneuf-du-Pape and neighbouring Gigondas, and normally slightly cheaper too! Bonus!

 

This wine is no exception. The blend consists of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 5% Mouvèdre and 5% Cinsault and the high proportion of Grenache in the blend is reflected in a palate full of rich, juicy, dark fruit. Cassis and black cherry are dominant alongside soft spice and an earthy notes. Bold tannins and high alcohol make this a big wine, but it’s by no means unbalanced. A perfect winter warmer when paired with a rich beef dish.
