2016 Domaine de Verquière Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages Sablet

SKU #1441527 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This has such ripe and juicy-fruit appeal; the flavors run so deep and so ripe with a fleshy, succulent and attractively rich palate. Smooth and fluid with some warmth at the finish. From organically grown grapes. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A complex blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Cinsault and 5% Mourvèdre, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages Sablet is wonderfully creamy and plush, with waves of ripe cherries and berries accented by hints of orange zest and black tea. It's full-bodied but lithe and elegant, finishing long. (JC) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

K&L Notes

The Verquière estate has been passed down from father to son for many generations and is now managed by Thibaut Chamfort. Following age-old traditions and sustainable practices, the estate was recently certified organic. The Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Sablet is a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, and 5% Cinsault grown on three different terroirs. The first being the chalky clay soils with loads of large pebbles from the lower part of the appellation, and limestone and marl from the highest part and the classic sandy soils of Sablet right around the village and estate. Verquière recently returned to us after a long hiatus and we are pleased to have them back.

Winemaker Thibaut Chamfort continues to bring some of the best appellation value wines in all of the southern Rhone, all while doing it organically and all for under $20 each. The Sablet is his home village and the vines are on primarily sandy soils (sablet is sand in French). This wine always has a little more structure and power behind it than other villages like the Rasteau and Plan de Dieu. He holds the wine back another year or so and when it releases, it always has more elegance to it. This is spicy and classic with red fruit, clove and herbs de Provence notes. One of the finest offerings from this producer and only $15? Yes, please!
