2010 Domaine Chamfort Vacqueyras

SKU #1093906 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Another brilliant offering from Chamfort is their 2010 Vacqueyras, made from the same blend as the 2009. A fabulous value, it exhibits a dense purple color as well as lots of sweet cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with licorice, barbecue smoke and truffles. Earthy, peppery, spicy and full-bodied, it should be drunk over the next 7-8 years.  (10/ 2011)

K&L Notes

Tremendous value from Vasco Urruty Perdigao of Domaine Chamfort. His first wine making venture was as an employee at Yves Cuilleron in Condrieu, then Provence and in Gigondas, before learning that Domaine Chamfort in Sablet was for sale. It was in 2007 that he purchased the entire property. Today, Vasco runs the 21 hectare operation and oversees all cellar work. Obsessed with finesse and balance, his wines nonetheless are not shy on color and power. Vasco makes a Sablet from a 5.5 hectare vineyard, a Rasteau, and a Vacqueyras (ten-hectare parcel) composed of mourvèdre, grenache and syrah. The 2009 Vacqueyras exhibits a myriad of complex flavors, undefinable class and breed and impressive finish. 14.5% abv.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
