Professional Wine Reviews for Arnoux & Fils Vacqueyras Seigneur De Lauris 2009

Rated 92 by Robert Parker
The 2009 Vacqueyras Seigneur de Lauris (70% Grenache and 30% Syrah aged 6 months in foudre and one-third new oak) reveals more structure as one might expect from the smaller barrels. It offers a deep purple color, lots of black currant, black cherry, licorice and spice box notes, full body, and a fleshy style. It is another typical 2009 Vacqueyras ... big, dense, tannic and massive. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

Additional Information on Arnoux & Fils Vacqueyras Seigneur De Lauris 2009

Winery: Arnoux & Fils

Vintage: 2009

Despite less than ideal climatic conditions, featuring storms which threatened an otherwise perfect year, most parts of California had an excellent year for viticulture. Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs were picked at optimum ripeness, and Californian white wine was just about as good as it could be. Surprises and overcoming difficulties summed up much of the United States' wine industry in 2009, and many of the results from Oregon, Washington State and all over California speak for themselves, with the flagship Cabernet Sauvignon grapes having developed healthy, thick skins and thus plenty of character and distinction. Elsewhere in the New World, South Africa had a very good year in 2009, and wineries across the cape of the African continent are proclaiming it a truly great vintage. In most of Europe, fine weather and punctual ripening periods produced some excellent wines, with many of the best coming out of France's Bordeaux and the surrounding regions. Merlot had an exceptionally good year in France, and wineries are proclaiming that the 2009 Merlot harvest was one of the best in living memory. Indeed, across most of France, ripening was relatively even, and red wine grapes such as Cabernet Franc, Syrah and others were reportedly highly characterful, with plenty of the required tannin levels with which to make high quality wines. Italy, too, had a very good 2009. Piedmont reported extremely favorable conditions throughout 2009, and their signature Nebbiolo grapes were more or less perfect when harvested, having benefited from the slight drop in temperature at the end of their ripening period. Veneto, too, had an enviable year, producing superb Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay wines in 2009.

Region: Rhone Valley

For over two thousand years, the southern French region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers and wineries of many different types. The ancient Greeks were the first to discover that a wide range of grape varietals can flourish in the rich soils and micro-climates which typify the region, and little has changed to this day. In the modern age, the Rhone Valley is recognized around the world as the home of excellent quality white, red and rosé wines, as well as some of the most highly respected blended wines on earth. The region is split into two distinctive sub-regions, with the cooler, continental northern sub-region producing primarily Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier wines of exquisite quality, and the hotter southern sub-region growing a much wider variety of grapes.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.

Appellation: Vacqueras

The Rhone Valley in France is a fascinating region when it comes to red wines, as there are dozens of small, unique and independent villages and communes who each have their own take on the classic French flavors and wine characters. One such place is the beautiful, hilly and romantic sub-region of Vacqueyras, a village which has been dedicated to the production of high quality blended red wines for over six hundred years, and which remains an important - if little known – centre of viticulture to this day. Most of the wines in Vacqueyras are made from the beautiful Grenache varietal grapes which thrive in the warm and dry climate of the region, and which are capable of expressing wonderful flavors and the best features of their terroir.
