Cor Hominis Laetificat Vacqueyras 2010
Like the sun out of a bottle, awakening all senses in a whirlwind of emotions ... a wine for special occasions.
Vacqueyras is producing magnificent wines in the shadow of the Montmirail hills.
Terroir : the soil here is all strength and serenity and this wine oozes robust equanimity.
Grape varieties : Grenache of course, for a true experience of the Rhône terroir. Also a robust Syrah and some Mourvèdre for its warmth and generosity. All grapes come from selected low–yield non-stressed vineyards.
After malolactic fermentation, the various varieties are blended.
Ageing takes place in oak barrels in our stone cellar. New oak is avoided in order to preserve the delicacy of the Grenache variety.
We accomplish long macerations to bring the best out of the grapes, always striving towards harmony.
Aspect: intense ruby red
Nose: powerful notes of blackberry, blackcurrant and garrigue, with a toasted
touch. Lengthy aromas showing no hint of fragility.
Taste: a voluptuous explosion of sensory experience. Moka and fruits alternate with a surprising freshness. Structure melts on the palate.
Serve at 16°.
