Dip your nose into your glass of Vacqueyras: there you’ll find the liquid reincarnation of the stony terroir from which this red hails. Garrigue—wild thyme, rosemary, and, judging from the scent, some lavender as well—grows copiously around the vineyard, adding an almost smoky, resinous perfume to the wine, as if the baking summer sun had liberated its aromas and the mistral had wafted over it to flavor the grapes. Aged in large neutral foudres, this wine has chewy tannins that are amazingly elegant, while there is no shortage of depth and density for extensive bottle aging, if desired. Cuvée Floureto’s mineral finish keeps it very fresh, providing a tension rarely found in Grenache-based blends. It almost seems as though the wine has been filtered through stones—but don’t worry that’s the only kind of filtration we would allow this Vacqueyras to endure.—Anthony Lynch.
