Pierre Rougon Vacqueyras 2014
BOOM! Say it with us --- “vah keh rahs”! 50% OFF this killer “GSM” (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre) from an old fave--- Rougon!
If you know, you know ---- this won’t last long...
If you're a well-priced Rhone aficionado, you KNOW Rougon -- he (and his father before him) are probably among the most legendary producers in the region (FYI Vacqueyras is nestled near Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas). So to snag a parcel of the lovely new 2014 at a price that is impossibly great, makes us happy happy happy. This should be your new "daily drinker" the moment it hits your front porch. It is bright and racy with black raspberries, wild, spicy blackberries, clove and iron, and a touch of earthy goodness, savory soy....soft and round and absolutely ready to go. FANTASTIC at this price, and from this producer ---- grab the Last Bottle before someone else does.....!
Here is a random cool and relaxing video (in French) about the region -- check it out -- it made us thirsty immediately!

About The Producer
With an expertise passed down from father to son over several generations, Pierre Rougon is above all, a wine-grower, passionate about the soil, the terroir, vines and grapes.
“Wine is made on the vine" he often says, for the latest equipment
and blending will never compete with the quality of a grape nurtured by the winemaker and cared for by hand, while protected from excessive pest-control treatments.
When he sees the same passion and the same level of skill in another wine-grower, Pierre Rougon instantly becomes a master salesman and offers to share the wines which spring from his alchemy.
This is how the range has grown to include wines of great character
from the most prestigious appellations of the Rhône Valley, Provence and Corsica.
