Vacqueyras Cuvée Lòpy

Vacqueyras Cuve Lpy

Ref: A050512

Massively powerful with great complexity. The 2009 Cuvée Lópy, made from 85 year-old vines grown on steep, stony slopes on the Sarrians côteaux, is massively powerful, dark and complex with balanced fruit and ripe tannins. It exhibits notes of cloves and cinnamon bark with a distinct smokey undertone. It has incredible length. Serge Ferigoule recently commented that he believed this wine still need some more time so drink 2010 - 2016 and beyond maybe.

When the Vacqueyras appellation broke away from the Côtes du Rhône Villages ‘family’ in 1990, Serge Férigoule realised that it was the ideal time to create something totally out of the norm and today has a quite remarkable selection of Vacqueyras which he has hand-crafted with enormous passion. Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.

From 16-hectares of vineyard (where he uses no pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers) he annually makes a pair of wines which he names (in Provençal French) after one of his daughters and after the farm in Avignon where he was born. The daughter's cuvée changes name on a year-to-year basis whilst the other one is for his top selection which is called Cuvée Lópy .

The normal cuvée is generally a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the rest a mix of Mourvèdre and Cinsault. The Lopy is 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah. These are extravagant, deep, dark and brooding classics

Champagne Gremillet
Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
