Le Rif 2014 - La Ferme du Mont, Vacqueyras

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

In Vacqueyras, making strong wines is a tradition, with a lot of alcohol and a powerful taste. If le Rif indeed displayed these sought-after characteristics, we didn’t expect that much refinement and delicate flowery aromas. This perfectly matches with more typical flavours of ripe fruits and warm spices. Moreover, a great freshness balances the power : this wine is doubtlessly a very nice surprise !  

 

Terroir

Vacqueyras appellation is located on the delicate Montmirail hillsides. In a Mediterranean area, climate is chilly but not cold during winter, and very warm during summer. It’s also remarkably windy, and when the wind comes from the north, it brings refreshing air from the mountains that keeps vines healthy !

lecepage Grape variety

Grenache is a variety that loves warmth and sun. This variety is very well known to express itself through generosity, a robust structure and clear aromas of black fruits and coffee, cacao… Stéphane Vedeau realises a masterstroke by revealing vegetal and floral notes in addition… What an artist !

lemillesime Vintage

After two rough vintages (2012 and 2013), 2014 comforted Rhône winemakers. Spring was warm and dry, so vines produced a lot of healthy flowers that later turned into healthy grapes. Then, summer was fresh and a bit wet, but sun shined enough for the grapes to perfectly ripen. 2014 Rhône wine are fully bodied, warm and aromatic ! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

This month, two wines were made by the same winemaker but on very different terroirs. The challenge of growing Grenache stimulated Stéphane Vedeau. Indeed, if it’s easy to make strong wines in this area, it is way harder to make fresh, soft and delicate wines. That’s why he chose La Ferme du Mont, at the foot of a hill that brings a little freshness to the vines. Your palate will agree and appreciate this challenge taken, cheers !
