Tasting Notes

The Verquiere estate has been passed down from father to son for many generations and is now managed by brothers Romain and Thibaut Chamfort. Following age-old traditions, as well as sustainable practices, the estate was recently certified organic. The Sablet is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault, grown on clay-limestone soils in the hills surrounding the village. Verquiere recently returned to us after a long hiatus and we are pleased to have them back.

    Domaine de Verquiere came to my attention earlier this past year, and I was amazed at the elegance and quality of the wines coming from this small, family-owned winery. Their wines tend to favor Grenache, but the Sablet also features Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsault, which makes for a bolder expression. The wine is medium bodied, with fine tannin and silky red fruit, accented by clay and spice notes. While not, perhaps, carrying the prestige of a larger producer in a more famous region, Domaine de Verquiere has quietly achieved a reputation with our staff of true, hand-crafted excellence that outshines its modest price.

    The Southern Rhone is veritably bursting with vibrant, beautifully cultivated fruit, and some of the finest red values are to be found in Villages wines from Rasteau, Seguret and of note, the picturesque little town of Sablet. Crafted from organic fruit grown on well-draining clay and limestone, this is a pitch-perfect blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre: round, full-bodied and satisfying, with notes of black cherry, spice and licorice. Another wonderful wine from the remarkable Verquiere estate. Pair it with a thick cheeseburger slathered in mushrooms.
