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

In southern France, one of the primary wine regions responsible for the production of a fine and varied range of wines is the Rhone Valley. Split into two large sub-regions, this expansive valley benefits from micro-climates which allow the wineries to grow a vast array of fine grape varietals. The northern region is the more limited one in regards to the amount of varietals grown, focusing predominantly on raising excellent quality Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier vines for their distinctive and elegant range of wines. The southern region, on the other hand, has a beautifully Mediterranean climate, and is home to dozens of grape varietals which are used to produce white, red and rosé wines, alongside some of the most famous and widely loved blended wines in the world.

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.
