Joncuas Vacqueyras 2019

$28

The Chastan family has been making wine in the same style for two generations. They were among the earliest in the region to farm organically (they were certified in 1980!), and their winemaking is simple and straightforward.  Vinification for all the wines is cement vats, followed by an elevage in either vats or neutral oak foudres.  The wines are neither fined nor filtered.

The Vacqueyras is particularly attractive in the 2019 vintage. Its dark fruit comes from a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre, vinified mostly from whole clusters. The wine is rich and round, with dense, fine-grained tannins and excellent balance.
