Eric Solomon Imports 92/93 Points

Domaine la Garrigue was founded in 1850 by the same family that runs the property today, Famille Bernard. The family farm vines of Grenache, Mourvedre, Cinsault, Syrah, Grenache Blanc and Clairette on the three primary terroirs of Vacqueyras. The average age of their vines is about 50 years old with some vines well over a century. The reticent but very talented Virginie Combe, a member of the 6th generation, is in charge of the winemaking with guidance from Philippe Cambie.

The Cuvée Romaine is a blend made from the more precocious tanks at Domaine la Garrigue. As such, it is in fact a declassified Vacqueyras not needing additional time in concrete. Therefore it can be viewed as a really easy-going “Vacqueyras” or an amazingly complex and serious Côtes-du-Rhône.

According to Jeb Dunnuck,  the wine is “a blend of 50% Grenache, 45% Syrah, and the rest Cinsault; it reveals a deep ruby/ plum color as well as a great nose of black raspberries, black cherries, olive tapenade, ground pepper, and earth. It’s a fleshy, full-bodied, beautifully pure, rounded effort that’s again a smoking value.”

The wine is hand-harvested and sustainably farmed.
