This expressive blend of Grenache and Syrah is driven by bright, vibrant red fruit. It is youthful and fresh, designed to be drunk younger to preserve its fabulous aromas of red cherry, cranberry and violet, with a long, silky finish.
'A selection of the youngest of our Vacqueyras parcels. We called this wine ‘Le Village’ as a tribute to the village of Vacqueyras, evocative of this wine classification, and also the name of a much-loved village of Provence in the middle of the vines.'
- Domaine Montirius
Based in the heart of Vacqueyras, Domaine Montirius are often cited to be one of the stars of this Southern Rhone appellation. Now run by the Saurel's fifth geenration, Christine and Eric, it is a labour-intensive operation that sees all of its vineyards farmed Biodynamically.
These are wines that offer exceptional value, from areas of the Rhone often overlooked in the sphere of fine wine. Domaine Montirius meticulously craft terroir-driven reds, which are generous and expressive when young, but also benefit from 5-10 years of bottle age.
