Natalie's Score: 91/100

Dried tobacco leaf and cigar box smoke on the nose and palate from judicious oak aging on this robust southern French red wine from the Rhone Valley. Black charry plums and berries. Relatively polished tannins. Made primarily from Grenache and Syrah grapes, this Vacqueyras wine has a dense texture with spicy notes on the finish. Pair with hearty meat dishes.

Food pairings: roast pork, roasted root vegetables and Tyroller bacon, sausage cassoulet.

Reviews and Ratings

Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of dark red cherries, anise, and baking spices carry through to a spicy cherry mouth, present tannins and and a persistent cherry finish.
Wonderful with wild boar and charcuterie boards.
Tasted March 2018.
The Louis Bernard winery, based in Gigondas, France, was founded in 1976 in the heart of the Rhône Valley and its renowned Crus. Over the past 20 years, Louis Bernard has established close partnerships with more than 20 respected vineyard owners in a common goal to devote the best of their wine and savoir-faire to producing great wines. Louis Bernard 2015 is a southern-Rhone red wine blend of Black Grenache and Syrah with lost of rich black cherry flavours, garrigue herbs, sweet spice, sweet tobacco leaf and dusty tannins. Drink now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews
