Vacqueyras Cuvee Lopy 2015, Sang de Caillou

Product Description

Massively powerful with great complexity. The 2015 Cuv‚e L¢py, made from 85 year-old vines grown on steep, stony slopes on the Sarrians c“teaux, is massively powerful, dark and complex with balanced fruit and ripe tannins. It exhibits notes of cloves and cinnamon bark with a distinct smokey undertone. It has incredible length. Serge Ferigoule recently commented that he believed this wine still need some more time so drink 2010 - 2016 and beyond maybe.

When the Vacqueyras appellation broke away from the C“tes du Rh“ne Villages ?family? in 1990, Serge F‚rigoule realised that it was the ideal time to create something totally out of the norm and today has a quite remarkable selection of Vacqueyras which he has hand-crafted with enormous passion. Recently, Robert Parker put Serge?s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.

From 16-hectares of vineyard (where he uses no pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers) he annually makes a pair of wines which he names (in Proven‡al French) after one of his daughters and after the farm in Avignon where he was born. The daughter's cuv‚e changes name on a year-to-year basis whilst the other one is for his top selection which is called Cuv‚e L¢py .

The normal cuv‚e is generally a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the rest a mix of MourvŠdre and Cinsault. The Lopy is 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah. These are extravagant, deep, dark and brooding classics
