    Cuvée presentation

    Vacqueyras rouge offers a good insight into the Reynaud style: great elegance and a wonderful, lingering length. The nose is dominated by red and black fruit, with notes of truffle and mixed herbs. The palate offers a velvety substance, power and volume, mixed with a slightly acidic structure with good length.
