*7R* 2014 Domaine la Ligiere "Cuvee Point G" Vacqueyras (Rhone Valley, FR)
Region: Vacqueyras, Rhone Valley, France
In the "Cuvee Point G" all of the fruit is 100% Grenache coming from vines of at least 75 years of age. Maintaining low yields in their vineyards and hand harvesting all the fruit to ensure the highest quality, this unique offering stands head-and-shoulders above its competition. A deep garnet color sets the tone for the wine, hinting of the aromas and flavors to come. Dark fruit, with hints of cherry syrup, give way to dried herbs and violets, bitter coffee, and hazelnuts. Supple tannins give the wine substance, and the juicy finish lingers for minutes. Scoring 91 points from Vinous.com, this is not a wine to pass up! A perfect contender to age in your cellar for 5-10 years, as well as the perfect companion for Fall feasts, this beautiful expression of terroir shows what can be accomplished when expert winemaking and nature come together.
