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

The southern French wine region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers for over two thousand years, with the first grapevines of the region being cultivated in around 600 BCE when the ancient Greeks arrived with their knowledge of viticulture and eagerness to produce more wine. Today, the region is famed around the world for the excellence of its produce, and has dozens of wineries making the most of the wide range of grape varietals which flourish there. In the northern sub-region, the continental climate and brisk winds coming off the Central Massif allow wineries to grow a smaller range of varietals – predominantly Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier, whereas the southern, more Mediterranean sub-region allows far more range. Here, dozens of varietals are grown for the production of white, red and rosé wines, all packed full of flavor and able to express the unique terroir they are grown on.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
