Domaine le Sang des Cailloux Vacquerays “Lopy” 2013


92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck,, “A candidate for the wine of the vintage, the 2013 Vacqueyras Cuvee Lopy is a smokin’ blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah that was completely destemmed and aged twelve months in oak tanks. Black currants, lavender, pepper and leather all emerge from this inky-colored, medium to full-bodied and surprisingly concentrated 2013 that certainly makes the most of the vintage. It’s already hard to resist, but has another decade of longevity.”

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.
