Professional Wine Reviews for Clos De Caveau Vacqueyras Fruit Sauvage 2016

Rated 93 by Decanter
This is a terrific estate and Vacqueyras and I loved their 2016 Vacqueyras Fruit Sauvage. I suspect it's the finest vintage ever for this cuvee, which ican be said for a number of estates/cuvees in 2016. Offering a huge nose of blackberries, plums, orange rind and violets, it has full-bodied richness, a seamless, unctuous texture, and terrific purity of fruit. Made from 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah that was destemmed and aged in concrete tanks, drink this beauty anytime over the coming decade.
Rated 92 by Vinous Media
Deep ruby. Highly perfumed red fruit liqueur, potpourri and exotic spice scents show impressive energy and delineation. Sappy, alluringly sweet and focused on the palate, offering seamless black raspberry, cherry cola and floral pastille flavors along with a hint of spicecake. Finishes sappy and smooth, displaying even tannins and emphatic, floral-tinged persistence.

Winery Clos De Caveau

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

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
