Review
The "G" is for the vigneron's father Gilbert. 50% old vine Grenache, 50% Syrah. Aged in once used French oak barrels. This dark, spicy, earthy Southern Rhone needs 3 years in bottle to blossom. If you can’t wait, then an hour of air. Black, very ripe berries, meat, soy sauce, garrigue, stones. Powerful…a great value.

Rating
2009: 91 Points - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator: "Rich and layered, with lush, velvety structure carrying the crushed plum, red currant, raspberry and blackberry fruit. Lots of violet, graphite and cocoa notes flow through the finish. "

2009: # 89 - Steve Tanzer, International Wine Cellars: "Deep ruby. Dark berry and cherry aromas complicated by hints of licorice and black pepper. Deeply pitched, virile blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors show a serious side and are nicely lifted by tangy acidity. Dense but not heavy, finishing with very good thrust and lingering smokiness."

2009: # (89-92) - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate: "Made from an equal part blend of cement-aged Grenache and barrel-aged Syrah, the 2009 Vacqueyras Cuvee G possesses an inky/plum/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of black fruits and charcoal, full-bodied power, a massive, thick style and solid tannins and structure. Everything is present for a graceful evolution of 7-10 years. "
