Domaine le Sang des Cailloux Vacquerays “Floureto” 2019


Grenache & Syrah (more Syrah these days). The emphasis here is on sublime elegance rather than rich glycerol power, that said there is no lack of muscle. Refined earthy tannins with outstanding levels of fresh savoury dark fruited brambly flavours and graceful poise. This wine for me is forever one of the jewels of the mighty Southern Rhone…and to be honest just keeps getting better (vine age + Serge’s son taking on winemaking responsibilities)!

More Information

One of the best properties in the appellation of Vacqueyras, certainly the best-named, Le Sang des Cailloux is located on the limestone escarpment which divides the villages of Vacqueyras and Sarrians. Serge Férigoule’s seventeen hectares rest on the great Plateau des Garrigues, where red clay, limestone, and the famous galets stones, impart a terrific intensity and depth to the wines. Given the aridity of the soil, the vines here are naturally prone to lower yields—this gives the wines their concentration.
