DOMAINE LA MONARDIÈRE

LVT 2018 r 2018 wh 2015 rosé Leading name at Vacqueyras, stylish wines, good fruit quality. The Vacqueyras Vielles Vignes red can be complex, as in 2013, and thoroughly excellent as in 2016. The 2 Monardes red is more open, while the Calades red is bottled after six months for early drinking. The Vacqueyras Galéjade white is made from Roussanne, Grenache blanc and Clairette, and gives authentic, firm drinking for la table. There is a good vin de pays red MON. Son Damien [pictured] is now at the helm, and is pursuing cool, clear-cut fruit in the wines, with Grenache ripeness less advanced than in the past. The vineyards are worked organically.
