2019 Domaine de la Charbonniere Vacqueyras Rhone France
Opulent notes of dark cherries, raspberries, and dried herbs . The mouth is utterly elegant with beautiful length driven by black berries and licorice.

As to the 2019s, these show slightly more richness and depth compared to the 2020s, but both vintages are terrific. The 2019 Vacqueyras gives up plenty of pepper, new leather, and ground herb notes as well as a core of darker berry fruits. It’s beautifully textured and medium to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a great finish.

A rich Southern Rhone red with impressively fine tannins that balance both the full body and deep black fruit. Long and supple yet finely nuanced finish with subtle spicy notes.
