2014 Vacqueyras Rouge “Cuvée Doucinello”

Domaine Le Sang des Cailloux

2014 Vacqueyras <i>Rouge</i> “Cuvée Doucinello” Domaine Le Sang des Cailloux - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Why pick up a bottle of 2014 Doucinello? Vigneron Serge Ferigoule’s answer could not be more concise: “There is no reason to hesitate before opening a 2014. It’s good—why ask questions?—just drink.” Coming from an amply mustachioed man with a southern melody in his voice, this is all you should need to hear. But for the curious, there’s concentrated red fruit, plenty of Provençal herbs, texture, balance, and all of the southern charm you could hope for.

About Southern Rhône

The southern Rhône valley is Grenache country. It’s also known for its stones. With a viticulture history dating back well before the Popes arrived in the 12th century and one of France’s oldest appellations d'origine contrôlée, Châteauneuf-du-Pâpe, the southern Rhône is unquestionably one of France’s best known and premier winegrowing regions. The wines have the pedigree and age-worthiness of Burgundy and Bordeaux, but with a rustic, Mediterranean character. Like most wines from southern France, the reds, whites, and rosés are blends. Filling out the Grenache for the reds and rosés, you’ll often find Syrah, Carignan, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault. The common white grape varieties are Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc, Viognier, Roussane, and Marsanne among others. From the alluvial riverbed stones found in Lirac, Tavel, and Châteauneuf to the limestone cliffs of the Dentelles de Montmirail that influence Beaumes-de-Venise (where you’ll find excellent Muscat), Vacqueyras, and Gigondas, great terroir abounds.

Kermit’s entrance in the region came in the mid 1970s on his first trip with Richard Olney, an American ex-pat and friend of Alice Waters. On that trip, Richard introduced Kermit to the Brunier family of Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe. Soon after, Kermit began importing the Brunier’s wines—their Châteauneuf-du-Pape “La Crau” bottling remains a staple of our portfolio today. In the late 1990s Kermit teamed up with the Brunier family to purchase the famed Gigondas estate, Domaine Les Pallières. More than 40 years later, we now import wines from fifteen southern Rhône domaines spanning the entire area of the region.
