Domaine La Monardiere Vacqueyras ‘Les Calades’ 2006
The nose was simple and forward with red berries, pepper and licorice. The palate was peppery, gamey and a little vegetal. Overall I enjoyed the decent flavour profile and this wine’s capacity to pair well with food, but I found it otherwise a bit thin and lacking in fruit concentration. It’s nonetheless good for the price and I think may be a bit of a style-wine, meaning that likes and dislikes could be divided quite strongly based on a style preference.
Good+, but Very Good (with food)
