Domaine Chamfort, Vacqueyras ‘La Perdrière’ 2021

Soft red fruits abound in this quintessential Vacqueyras. Concentrated, rich and finely honed this is an excellent example from this prestigious Southern Rhône cru.

Outside of the ubiquitous Châteaneuf-du-Pape, Vacqueyras joins Rasteau as some of the most well-known – and well-regarded – crus of the Southern Rhone. Where it differs in style from its counterpart, though, is  with a focus on fresher, often more red fruit flavours. Certainly not lacking in character and concentration, Chamfort’s ‘La Perdrière’ has depth rather than breadth, with fresh strawberry, raspberry, red cherry and a touch of mint, too. There’s a little black plum, too, with blackberry and just a hint of tobacco and spice to finish.
