Vacqueyras Domaine de Montbayon

Vacqueyras Domaine de Montbayon bottle

For three generations, the estate has been run by the same family greatly passionate about vineyards, nature and wine. Located between the villages of Gigondas and Vacqueyras, this property benefits from an exceptional exposure to the setting sun at the foothills of the "Dentelles de Montmirail".

The vines are goblet pruned. The soil of pebbly limestone produces full-bodied wines that age very well.

Slightly more expensive, the 2016 Vacqueyras Domaine de Montbayon is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre that was brought up all in tank. It offers plenty of earthy black and blue fruits, peppery herbs and hints of violets in a full-bodied, impressively concentrated, balanced style. It’s just another outstanding looking barrel sample from this negociant.
  • Winemaking

    Sorting and total destemming, prior to a four-week maceration. Daily pumping-over to extract the tannins.

  • Nose

    Intense aromas of small red fruits, black cherry compote and violet when young. As it ages, it unveils licorice and spice character.

  • Palate

    Delicate, complex and full-bodied wine with harmonious tannins and great length.
