I bought this bottle 5 years ago for 16 EUR and I'm not sure about the current pricetag but man what a bargain it was. I had to dig deep into my cellar to pull this one but I'm so glad I did..
This is unlike anything I know from that region.
The nose is blood orange and olive and garrigue. The palate is magnificent. A very strong acid backbone, a very dry mouthfeel with those blood orange notes all along. A huge width and an soft mouthfeel, a power house of a mid palate with carressing tannins which create a drying layer, and eventually a very long, everlasting finish with that blood orange note which turns into blood orange peel in the end with a tiny bitter twist. This is greatness before my eyes (and tastebuds) — 13 days ago

Hitting the spot after a long day of tasting Rose. The 2012 Vacqueyras is in a bueatifully place today and reminds me quite a bit of the 2011 CdR from Chateau des Tours, which happens to be on my short list of dessert island wines. A bouquet that mixes rhubarb pie, crushed strawberries and mint with hints of Madagascar vanilla and smoke. It's just pure juicy pleasure on the palate, sweet yet focused and balanced, and just goes on and on through the spicy, candied orange-tinged finale. Don't overthink this, just enjoy with abandon. — a month ago

Lemon/apple pastry, toasted almond, vanilla cream, sea shell. Lovely yellow orchard and citrus fruit, ample acidity, and hints of toast and minerals.
Lovely balance that's tilted a bit towards the acid side, but still great. Yum yum. — 2 months ago
