Domaine Vaquer 'L'Exception' Rouge

Domaine Vaquer



L'Exception is Vaquer’s top wine, from the special sub-appellation within Côtes du Roussillon Villages of Les Aspres. The 'Exception'of its name harks back to the Vaquers' long refusal to adopt the Côtes du Roussillon Villages appellation, the 'exception' being this wine which they had labelled 'des Apres' themselves ever since 1968.

Probably the most powerful of the Vaquer range, Frédérique still manages to make this fruit-packed blend of Carignan, Grenache and Syrah, heady with rich bramble and spice, simply irresistible by judicious ageing of the Carignan in barrels, not to add wood but to allow the wines to fully open before bottling. This magnificent wine is a breathtaking tribute to Frédérique's Burgundian heritage and her incomparable winemaking skills.
