CHÂTEAU DES ROQUES

LVT 2016 r 2016  wh  A very reliable source of traditional, good VALUE Vacqueyras, emphasis on hearty drinking with a softening over time, which repays patience. The vineyards are less treated than in the past, with daughter Corine steering things along.There is strong vintage respect, so the 2012 was juicy and detailed, while the 2013 was tight, wrapped up. The vintages 2011 to 2015 inclusive of the classic wine, called Cuvée du Château since 2013, were all ****. An old vines wine, called Vertige des Gouttes, was made in 2014 and 2015; 60% Grenache (oldest 1940s), 40% Mourvèdre, it is less interesting than the classic red. The whites carry definite local character, go their own way, and are absolutely suited to la table.
