Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre.
75cl * 14% ABV * Vacqueyras, France
La Bastide St Vincent is historic, family owned wine domaine with 17th-century origins. 2016 was an almost perfect vintage in the Rhône, similar to the excellent 2015, but with just a fraction more freshness and purity. The wines are exceptional quality with concise, classic fruit. Not far from the famous appellation of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Vacqueyras was granted its own AOC status in 1990 and the wines can offer exceptional value for money. Full-bodied. rich and spicy, with perfumed, baked red fruit, sweet spice, liquorice, a hint of very dark chocolate and fine, well-integrated tannins.
Vacqueyras pairs fabulously with herby, earthy dishes, especially warming stews and casseroles, but also barbecued lamb, duck or beef.
