2016 | Vacqueyras | Rouge | 75cl

Rhone Valley

France

In the former we find strong wines in beautiful colours with warm, spicy notes, produced by vineyards that stretch 4,700 ha along the Rhone. The latter, with an area of 71,000 ha, is much more important, and this is evident of course in its annual producation of red, rosé and white wines quite unlike those of the Northern Rhone. Numerous grape varieties are used here to match the rich but diverse terrains. All of them yield colourful, fruity reds and full-bodied, aromatic whites. A distinguishing feature of Rhone Valley wines is that they are grown in soil made up of 4 different types of rock, the advantage of which is that it regulates the vines' drainage and gives the wines their unique character. Hence the origin of historically famous wines such as Hermitage or Châteauneuf-du-Pape – still a pleasure on the tongue today.
