Producer: Bernard family
Grape: Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre
Bottle Size: 75cl
A blend of 80% Grenache with the balance being made up of Syrah and Mourvedre, this is a typically peppery red from the area. A deep purple in colour with scents of red fruits, herbs de Provence and black pepper. The palate is chewy in texture with flavours of sweet cherries and spice. The finish is lingering and fresh. The overall impression is one of rusticity.
Domaine la Garrigue is a large (145 hectares) estate situated in the village of Vacqueyras itself and has been in the Bernard family since 1850. The vines are cultivated strictly according to organic principles and are also grown in the neighbouring village of Sarrians. The Bernard family also own one of the most well-known restaurants in the region – ‘Les Florets’ – to be found in the village of Gigondas.
