Dark red. Assertive nose offers peppery bitter cherry, violet, magnolia and garrigue scents. Sweet and lush on the palate, with a dense, chewy texture and bright flavors of kirsch, licorice and espresso. Extremely rich and concentrated on the building, expanding finish. Made mostly from old grenache vines, this easily carries its 15.8% alcohol. (JR)
Proprietors Gilles and Thierry Faraval turned in an impressive performance with their 2003 Vacqueyras La Ponche. A blend of 70% Grenache (from 50-year old vines) and 30% Mourvedre (from 10-year old vines), it is a jammy, heady effort with loads of alcohol and fruit, medium to full body, and an exotic, ripe style boasting layers of fruit as well as glycerin.
