2010 Vacqueyras, La Pavane, La Bastide St. Vincent

Vacqueyras, La Pavane, La Bastide St. Vincent
Sourced from six small parcels on the famous Plateau des Garrigues, the Pavane is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah from 40 year old vines. The wine displays classic notes of licorice, macerated prune and autumnal bonfires, with chewy tannins and plenty of savoury guts in reserve!
Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer, February 2012

The evocative names of the surrounding landmarks, specifically the Plateau Des Garrigues and the Dentelles De Montmirail, provide a scenic geographical backdrop to Laurent Daniel’s vineyards. Silky elegance, real Mediterranean warmth and finely balanced tannins are the secrets to Laurent’s success, not forgetting more prosaic factors such as timely picking of the grapes and attention to detail in the winery.

Vacqueyras, La Pavane, La Bastide St. Vincent
Very dark crimson. Floral, soapy aromas. Lip smacking and round and very satisfying. Fresh rather than drying on the finish. Lots of floral charm. A very satisfying charm.

Vacqueyras, La Pavane, La Bastide St. Vincent
A blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah from 40 year old vines situated on the famous Garrigues sector of Vacqueyras, the 2010 Vacqueyras Pavanne performed well in my tastings. One of the strongest Vacqueyras of the vintage, it exhibits a dense purple color along with copious quantities of dark, black fruits, intense flavors, full body, good acidity and sweet tannin. It should drink well for 10-15+ years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great value and quality Vacqueras Good reviews from the BBR team and others plus an excellent price led me to buy a few cases of this one. Every bit as good as anticipated this has been proving its worth in accompanying robust meat dishes from the BBQ. This grenache, mourvedre, syrah blend is deep and dense in colour and full of complex dark fruit flavours and transient resinous notes redolent of the garrigue, delivering just what you'd like to find in a wine from the Southern Rhone. But then, I'm a Rhone fan. 27 July 2014
