Domaine De La Verde Prélude AOP Vacqueyras 2016 (1 fl.)
Denne saftige og aromatiske rødvin er fremstillet på basis af 55% Grenache, 23 % Syrah, 12 % Mourvèdre og 10 % Cinsault fra Lieu-dit “La Verde”.
Galloni (90-92 points):
“Black raspberry, cherry liqueur, violet and garrigue qualities on the deeply perfumed nose. Fleshy, appealingly sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering concentrated red and blue fruit flavors and a subtle touch of candied licorice on the back half. Becomes livelier with air and finishes on a sweet dark berry note, displaying strong thrust, velvety tannins and impressive persistence.”
Jeb Dunnuck (90-92 points):
“The 2016 Vacqueyras Prelude is the least expensive cuvée and offers a ripe, full-bodied, front-loaded style to go with its classic plum and blackberry fruit. Brought up all in concrete tanks and a Grenache dominated blend (there are smaller amounts of Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault), it should drink nicely right out of the gate and last for 5-6 years.”
