Both of these Vacqueyras are good efforts. The 2012 Vacqueyras Cuvee des Templier has plenty of Provençal character in its black cherry, peppery, leather and green herbs-styled bouquet. Brought up all in tank, enjoy this medium-bodied, supple and nicely textured effort through 2020.
Score: 88 points
