A very fruity wine with strong persistent aromas of red fruits, spices and violets because the proportion of Syrah is higher. Its garnet red colour and lasting tannins harmonise beautifully. Young, it can be accompanied by grilled meats like rib steak (cotes de boeuf) with béarnaise sauce or grilled lamb cutlets with thyme and gratin dauphinois.

Plush, juicy Grenache is balanced by sharper, savory tones of Syrah and Mourvèdre in this ripe, silk-textured red. It's briskly concentrated but nuanced by hints of toast, wet earth and cocoa powder. Full bodied, plush and silky, it's a satisfyingly rich but structured wine to enjoy now-2023.

A bit of tar and green onion are apparent on the nose of the 2015 Vacqueyras Cuvee des Templiers, a 50-50 blend of Syrah and Grenache. Those elements should prove less bothersome with decanting or additional bottle age, as the underlying medium-bodied wine is sound, offering cola, black olives and dark berries/plums. Firm tannins on the finish would work well with rare grilled meats or roasts. Drink Date: 2019-2025.
