Roucas Toumba Vacqueyras "La Grande Terre" 2019
|Available in store:||Check availability|
Roucas Toumba or "the fallen rock" in old Provençal, taken from the ancient name for this area, is a small family-run vineyard in the town of Vacqueyras. The wine consists of mostly grenache with equal parts syrah and mourvedre to finish off the other 40% of the blend. The grapes are destemmed and fermented in concrete to preserve the freshness. The wine is a great example of what Vacqueryas offers in both power and restraint: honey, cinnamon, violets matched with plum, blackberries and cassis. A nice alternative to leaner Cotes du Rhones and a beautiful expression of what the terrior offers.
