Château des Roques Cuvée du Château Vacqueyras 2014

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  352039

(raised in a combination of stainless steel tanks and used demi-muids) Bright ruby. Blackberry, cherry pit, violet and licorice on the mineral-accented nose. Chewy and broad on entry and then tighter in the middle, offering focused dark berry, bitter cherry and licorice flavors that show very good depth. Closes sappy and long, featuring slow-building tannins and a lingering hint of dark chocolate. The domaine refers to this bottling as 'Cuvée des Roques.' Drinking window: 2019-2025. Score - 90.
