Le Plan des Moines “La Cape” Vacqueyras, 2015

£26.00

Vacqueyras is best described as a turbo-charged Côtes du Rhône.  As one of the Southern Rhône’s “cru” appellations it almost invariably offers superior value to its more famous neighbour, Châteauneuf du Pape.  This excellent example is deep ruby in colour with pronounced black currant and red berry fruit aromas, sweet spice and silky tannins.  Very fresh and great length.

Le Plan des Moines

 

Three old mates with six decades of experience between them, got together to create a fresher, natural style of Rhône wines. Wine merchant Daniel Orsolini, sommelier Thierry Pommet, and winemaker Claude Serra, have crafted a series of remarkable, organic, low-intervention wines with fruit from the Rhône Valley’s diverse terroirs. Wines that take you down unexpected avenues and will prompt you to re-evaluate this endlessly fascinating and historic region.

Description

This Vacqueyras comes from manually harvested grapes. The grapes are then de-stemmed and put into tanks without yeast so the fermentations start slowly ater 48hours at a temperature of 22 / 23°C. A small part of the wine Matures in oak barrel and the other part is traditionally matured in a vat.
