delas dom des genets vacqueyras 2015



Varietals: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre

The vineyard area covers the two communes of Vacqueyras and Sarrians, within the Vaucluse `département' down to the `Dentelles de Montmirail' hills. The soils are alluviums and terraces of glacier origin, formed during the Riss period of the quaternary era between 120,000 and 300,000 thousand years BC. The climate is hot and dry, with plenty of sunshine. Following the 1937 Cotes du Rhone AOC decree, Vacqueyras was one of the first `Villages' recognized for the quality of its wines. Initially ranked as `Cotes du Rhone Vacqueyras' and then classified as Cotes du Rhone Villages in 1955, the Vacqueyras vineyard was finally granted AOC in 1990.

After de-stemming and crushing of the grapes, alcoholic fermentation takes place in closed tanks over a period of 15 days. In order to improve extraction, daily pumping over is carried out. Temperatures are controlled between 82F to 86F (28 to 30C). After drawing-off and pressing, malolactic fermentation takes place in tanks. The wine is kept in tanks in order to preserve the fruit aromas. They are regularly racked to provide natural stabilization. The `Domaine des Genets' cuvee is then bottled following maturing, which can last up to twelve months.

Tasting Notes
The color is a ruby red hue with bright tinges. The nose shows a series of complex aromas that range from very ripe fruits to black cherries and other stone fruit. This is lifted by a touch of licorice. On the palate we have a full-bodied, well built wine that has just the right amount of power. The long finish in the mouth is a sign that this wine has good potential for laying down.

Food Pairing
This wine is ideal served with simple Provencale cuisine, stews, and beef in sauce. It also goes well with any kind of cheese.
