Wine Mag 91/100

La Cantarelle is this producer's homage to century-old Grenache vines (accented by just 10% of Syrah). Bold and voluminous, it's a rich, creamy sip that's plump with black-cherry and plum flavors. The finish is long, marked by a swirl of caramel and soft, feathery tannins. Best enjoyed now–2024.

Domaine La Garrigue is a small family estate established in 1850 and the work of six generations of the Bernard family. Based in the heart of the Vacqueyras appellation – Southern Cote du Rhone. The average vine age is between 40 and 60 years old for the Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache Blanc, Cinsault and Clairette, while some of their Grenache vines are between 80 and 100 years old.

Vacqueyras enjoys a Mediterranean climate with lots of sunshine, low rainfall and the famous 'Mistral' wind that helps to keep the vines free of disease. We have chosen to import the top wine of the estate, made from the oldest vines and thus the most intense and powerfully flavoured wines.
