Château Des Roques Cuvée Du Château 2013 is a full-bodied Vacqueyras from the Rhône wine region. The 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvédre and 15% Syrah red wine blend is smoky with dried herbs, crushed raspberry and red cherry flavours on the palate. This wine was aged in stainless steel and oak barrel for nine months. Pair with a prime rib steak.

Food pairings: grilled venison steaks, rabbit stew, bison steaks.

Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I could research it to confirm it, but I'll leave that to you if you wish. This tasted like it had a much higher percentage of Syrah than I associate Vaqueyras with. Medium weight, fully dry with a freshness to the berry fruits. Made more complex with a herbs on the finish. Enjoy
Château Des Roques Cuvée Du Château 2013 is a full-bodied deep and dark Vacqueyras from the Rhône wine region. The 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre and 15% Syrah red wine blend is smoky with dried herbs, crushed raspberry and red cherry flavours on the palate. This wine was aged in stainless steel and oak barrel for nine months. Tannins are fine-grained and grippy. Pair with a prime rib for sure. Drink now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
