Jean Mounard is a rare wine broker from Paris turned winemaker. His contacts with the many high end producers that he sourced for his business now provide him with the raw materials to produce his own very fine wines like this Vacqueyras. This is a 75% Grenache, 25% Syrah blend, sourced from a single vineyard. The grapes were hand-picked and 100% de-stemmed. A long maceration was carried out followed by fermentation in cement tanks and large wooden barrels. The wines matured for 10-15 months in oak barrels. It shows a tantalizing bouquet of flowers, spices ripe fruit and savory nuances . The palate shows classic 'garrigues' - wild herbs –along with dried cherries, dark chocolate and roasted coffee. The mouthfeel is supple and rich and the finish is long and expressive. On Sale!!
