91 points Robert Parker. "A superb example of a bargain-priced beauty is the 2004 Vacqueyras. This blend of 75% Grenache (50- to 100-year-old vines) and 25% Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsault exhibits a dense plum/purple color as well as a sumptuous nose of roasted herbs, grilled meats, blackberries, sweet jammy cherries, and licorice. Boasting huge flavors, abundant glycerin, and a long, concentrated, pure, lightly tannic finish, it should age for 4-6 years. It reminds me of the top Vacqueyras cuvees from that appellation’s benchmark domaine, Sang des Cailloux. There are 1,000 cases of this stunning effort for the U.S. marketplace. Don’t miss it! This is a very special wine!" Readers need to be careful buying these wines as there are multiple cuvees and significant differences in the quality. The best cuvees are all made by the famed southern Rhone oenologist Philippe Cambie and represented in the United States by importer European Selections (Eric Solomon). These wines (*) are custom cuvees bottled unfined and unfiltered for Solomon. They are different from bottlings sold elsewhere in the world. Solomon believes in getting the wines in the bottle much earlier than the proprietor, and I tend to agree.
