Vacqueyras 2014

Domaine D'Ourea
Vacqueyras

We love this because...

This speaks hugely of the region it comes from - loads of red fruit paired with an earthy, herbal element that for us is particularly evocative of the Rhone Valley; this would be a spectacular partner to a slow roasted leg of lamb.

The wine

Vacqueyras is one of those picture perfect little French towns that immediately inspires visitors to think about jacking in life elsewhere and relocating to enjoy its bucolic charms. Fortunately for those not quite a position to make this transition a little of that sensation remains when enjoying a glass of Adrien’s interpretation of this famous village’s wines. This wine actually comes from the oldest plantings that Adrien inherited from his grandfather and were planted back in 1950 on gravel and marls soils on what has always been considered the cooler side of the village. Now, like all of Ourea’s land the vines are farmed organically with Adrien putting in a huge amount of effort in the vineyard.

The winemaking starts with the grapes (remaining as whole bunches) receiving a gentle crushing before being sent to tank to ferment. Long and slow are the watchwords for the fermentations at Ourea with little in the way of punch downs ensuring the finished wines have an elegant, fresh tannic profile. The wines are pressed after around 30 days and then aged in concrete for 18 months before bottling and release. The finished blend here is 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Carignan.
