Domaine le Sang des Cailloux Vacqueyras Cuvée Azalais 2018
|Region||France, Rhone, Vacqueyras|
|Brand||Domaine le Sang des Cailloux|
Vacqueyras, the village whose apt name translates as “Valley of the Stones” from the local dialect, celebrates its thirtieth anniversary as an official cru of the Rhône this year. Coincidentally, at Sang des Cailloux, Serge Férigoule also celebrates his thirtieth anniversary of taking over the estate, where he was an employee for many years, before his boss called it quits and handed him the keys. Pioneers in the methods of organics, soon followed by biodynamics, the Férigoules have honed a unique style of Vacqueyras that mixes deep, dark color with a lightness of touch, rusticity with warmth, and minerality with delicious fresh fruit.
