The Roussillon Renaissance is in full swing, but as we rush to anoint newcomers like Roc des Anges, Danjou Bannessy, and La Bancale, it’s important to note that there have always been certain vignerons in Roussillon making a more elegant style of wine – pinotent, or ‘resembling Pinot Noir’. Domaine Vaquer traces back to Pierre Vila, who purchased this vineyard just outside Banyuls in the gently rising foothills of the Pyrenees. His son-in-law Fernand Vaquer was a national rugby champion who “helped a bit in the vineyards”, but his son Fernand Jr. decided to stick with the wine gig. Today, the domaine is in the hands of Frédérique Vaquer, and this charming cuvée of Carignan, Grenache, and Syrah is named for her late husband, Bernard. The nose has plenty of Mediterranean warmth to offer, with notes of deep black cherry fruit leather, dark roast coffee, and iron-streaked soil. On the palate, a jolt of acid streaks across the field, showing raspberry and red cherry, crumbled earth and garrigue, hibiscus infused black tea tannins gather on the finish and leave a finish of flowers and savory spice. Serve with Catalan Charcouterie and grilled meats.
