JS wine rating 92 points:
“Ripe-plum, baked-blueberry, lavender, licorice and nutmeg aromas. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, powdery tannins. Concentrated with a deliciously creamy finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.” - Tasted on Jul 14, 2021 James Suckling

Wine Advocate 91 points:

“A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, the 2019 Vacqueyras delivers garrigue-accented notes of blackberries, blueberries and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, it shows more freshness than some of the other 2019s from Vignon, while the tannins are ripe and supple, turning silky on the finish.” - Tasted on Sep 24, 2020 Joe Czerwinski
