Wine Advocate-Parker :
A step ahead of the Rasteau, the 2016 Vacqueyras Vieilles Vignes shows genuine local character in its notes of raspberry-like Grenache fruit and garrigue shadings. It's full-bodied, plush and long on the palate, with ample concentration and less overt oak than expected. It's 70% Grenache, with the balance split between Mourvèdre and Syrah. Half of the fruit was vinified whole cluster and aged in concrete, the other half was destemmed and aged in barrel.
