Damien Vache’s excellent Domaine de la Monardière is recognised as one of the very best in the Vacqueyras wine appellation. The distinctive clay and sand dominated soils give Vacqueyras an identity suitably different from that of near-neighbour Gigondas. The wines are perhaps a little more elegant here, with more focus on primary fruit and in the best examples, very finely etched tannins. Les Deux Monardes is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, which has been aged for 12 months in concrete tanks and then bottled without fining or filtration.
