Montirius Vacqueyras Garrigues 2019
|France, Rhone, Vacqueyras
I loved the 2019 Vacqueyras Garrigues, and it's one of my favorite vintages for this cuvée. Based on 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah brought up in tank, it offers earth red and blue fruits as well as beautiful truffly earth, underbrush, and pepper notes. Medium to full-bodied, lively, and balanced, it's going to cruise for 10-12 years in the cellar.
Fresh redcurrant and strawberry notes introduce this full bodied but crisply balanced blend of Grenache and Syrah. Lifted by bold streaks of salt and chalky minerality, it's a youthful, easy drinking Vacqueyras with hints of smoky, black-olive accents that linger on the finish. At peak now-2025.
