91-93 Jeb Dunnuck : "ruby-colored, the 2016 Vacqueyras Pince Lapin checks in as a blend of equal parts Grenache and Syrah brought up in French oak. It's a new cuvée (this is the first time I've tasted it) and offers an exotic bouquet of sweet red and black fruits, peach pit, bay leaf, and an almost tropical fruit character. This carries to a medium-bodied, silky, incredibly elegant Vacqueyras that shines for its complexity, nuance, and balance. It's a beauty!"

Food and wine pairing
This wine goes beautifully with lamb or a risotto with artichokes.
Qualitative "terroir" of the "garrigues of Vacqueyras". Stony calcareous-clayey soil.
The grapes are selected and picked by hand at a place called "Pince-Lapin". Scuffed and compressed, berries are then put in a tank for a period of three to four weeks. During this period of fermentation aromas are revealed and tannins delicately extracted.
Aging is done in french oak barrels allowing a subtle exchange with the wood.
Pretty garnet dress. Intense brilliance on blackcurrant jam, mocha, eucalyptus, black pepper ... Beautiful sweetness in attack, the tannins are delicate. Long finish, minty. Very elegant.
