Vacqueyras Les Hauts de la Ponce 2020 - Font Sarade
In Vacqueyras, winemakers get to choose which grapes they use as long as 50 per cent of the blend is Grenache. At this red Font Sarade's Vacqueyras Les Hauts de la Ponce is Grenache complemented by 25 % Syrah and 25% Mourvédre to give it freshness and a nice firmness. Bernard & Clair Burle give their wine extra backbone by not de-stemming the grapes, allowing the tannins from the stalks to enter the wine as well. This used to be very common and a good way to keep wines from becoming too ripe and soft. With that, it explains the beautiful expression of this Vacqueyras. On the nose there is lovely fruit, with cherries, bay leaf and liquorice; on the palate, blackberries, plum, nicely firm tannins and freshness. Drink it with nice game and crumbly cheese and just a little below 16 degrees.
