Jancis Robinson MW - "Dark crimson. Spicy, leathery nose. Big and bold and full of life."

Wine Advocate - "The opulent, voluptuously textured, dense, rich 2010 Vacqueyras Cristins (reveals) lots of Provencal herbs as well as blackberry and black cherry liqueur notes in its full-bodied, intense, luscious personality. This impressive Vacqueyras should drink well for 10-12 years."

Vacqueyras is a Southern-Rhone appellation for red, white and rosé wines. Until 1990, it was one of the Cotes du Rhone Villages, before the consistent performance of its (red) wines earned it a promotion.
The reds are required to contain 50% of classic southern Rhone variety Grenache. The remainder of the blend is made up of Syrah and Mourvedre, with an additional 10% of any of the other Cotes du Rhone varieties (bar Carignan).
In terms of climate, the area is Mediterranean (the sea is just 80km away) and is therefore blessed with a long, hot, dry growing season, ensuring maximum ripeness for its grapes. This, combined with the areas’ generally south-westerly aspect, results in unusually big and powerful wines.
