LVT 2018 r 2018 wh 2019 rosé 2016 Muscat VDN Philippe Bernard is an ex-Co-operateur from the Cave de Vacqueyras, which he left for good in 2010, the last crop sent there the 2009. The first vintage was 2008, with some Vacqueyras bottled, nothing else. Spread across several appellations, and half the domaine is in vineyards [58 hectares], the other half is a nursery plant practice. The reds can be good, but lack a little flair. The entry level Le Mourre de la Caille Vacqueyras red contains around 15% Mourvèdre, whose stems can be included, a helpful move in the hot summers of recent times; the 2018 was a vibrant, generous **** wine. The Point G Vacqueyras red [translates as G full stop/period] is the old 1930s Grenache wine, only up to 3,000 bottles, the 2015 a good pedigree **** wine. The Vacqueyras white from Le Chemin Blanc is based on Clairette and Roussanne, and is a firm, grounded table wine, good with Mediterranean classics. There is a stylish Muscat de Beaumes, while the Beaumes-de-Venise red Les Garennes can produce the goods, as it did in 2016 with a **** STGT wine. The vineyards have been organic since 2008-09.
