Domaine du Grand Prieur is one of the oldest estates in Cru Vacqueyras and dates back to the year 980, located in the Hautes Garrigues in Sarrians. Today, Domaine du Grand Prieur continues to produce wine thanks to the Gras family, who acquired the property in 1880. Today, Léo Gras and his two sons look after the vines in the long family tradition.
Vacqueyras wines can be some of the finest in the southern-Rhône and can offer quite a bargain when compared with its better know neighbours.
This wine is very aromatic and slightly spicy, with hints of red and morello cherries, blackberrys, violets and wet earth on the nose. It is medium-bodied on the palate with flavours of blackberry, sour cherry and a smokey earthiness. It has smooth, ripe tannin. The beautiful, long aftertaste features hints of garrigue and liquorice.
