Domaine Vaquer - l'expression - Rouge - 2016

Although it is always criticized, it is the Carignan that best reflects, in vinification, the freshness that clay keeps and the idea that I have of wines from here with my Burgundian sensitivity: I find there my dear aromas of blackcurrant, a certain acidity on the palate, a very fine tannic structure... Straight and elegant wine, crispy with small red fruits and a delicate tannic structure.

The word of the Winemaker, :

I like this straight, fine wine, with a tannic structure of elegance and crisp fruit aromas. The idea was born in 1998 but it was only the following year that this pure Carignan cuvée was born. In my opinion, it is the best expression of the Aspres terroir, the vines in the middle of the...

The Wine Estate

You have to be a good person to be a good winegrower. Frédérique gives herself to you through her wines, which you must know how to "listen" to.
