Domaine le Sang des Cailloux Vacqueyras 2012
|Region||France, Rhone, Vacqueyras|
|Brand||Domaine le Sang des Cailloux|
All of Serge's seventeen hectares rest on the great Plateau des Garrigues, where red clay, limestone, and the famous galets roulés, or rounded stones, impart a terrific intensity and depth to the wines. Given the aridity of the soil, the vines here are naturally prone to lower yields-this gives the wines their concentration and power. His wines have everything we love about the Rhône - wild and chewy with great notes of leather, spicy garrigue, and smoky, black fruit.
