Domaine de Fontavin Vacqueyras Rouge Cuvée Tradition: A Silky & Elegant Southern Rhône Gem

Calling all lovers of full-bodied reds with a touch of finesse! If you're looking for a wine that bursts with flavour yet glides effortlessly across the palate, then look no further than the Domaine de Fontavin Vacqueyras Rouge Cuvée Tradition. This stunning red from the Southern Rhône Valley in France is a must-try for any discerning wine drinker.

About the Wine

Produced by the established Chouvet family, who have been stewards of Domaine de Fontavin since 1989 and converted to organic viticulture in 2008, the Cuvée Tradition is a testament to their dedication to quality and sustainable practices. The grapes for this wine are meticulously hand-harvested from 80-year-old vines, drawing nourishment from the estate's signature red clay soils rich in large pebbles. This combination of meticulous attention to detail and exceptional terroir results in a truly remarkable wine.

Tasting Notes

  • Colour: The Domaine de Fontavin Vacqueyras Rouge Cuvée Tradition boasts a deep, almost inky purple colour with ruby red highlights.
  • Nose: As you swirl the wine in your glass, a captivating bouquet unfolds, dominated by aromas of red fruits such as blackberry, blackcurrant, and hints of raspberry. These vibrant fruit notes are complemented by subtle earthy tones and a touch of spice, creating a complex and inviting aroma.
  • Palate: The first sip of this Vacqueyras is a revelation. The wine is full-bodied and expressive, with a core of juicy dark fruits that explodes on the tongue. Despite its richness, the tannins are surprisingly delicate and well-integrated, giving the wine a smooth, almost velvety texture. Hints of black pepper and earth linger on the finish, adding depth and complexity to the overall flavour profile.

Food Pairing

The Domaine de Fontavin Vacqueyras Rouge Cuvée Tradition is a versatile food pairing wine that can elevate a wide range of dishes. Here are some of our recommendations:

  • Red Meat: This wine is a perfect match for grilled or roasted red meats such as steaks, lamb chops, or venison. The bold fruit flavours of the wine stand up well to the richness of the meat, while the smooth tannins help to cut through fat.
  • Duck: Duck dishes with sweet and tangy fruit sauces are a fantastic pairing for this Vacqueyras. The sweetness of the sauce complements the fruit notes in the wine, while the acidity helps to balance the richness of the duck fat. You could try our recipe for Magret Duck with Raspberry Sauce for a perfect match.
  • Hard Cheeses: If you're looking for a cheese pairing, choose something mature and robust like a cheddar, Gruyère, or Comté. These cheeses have a bold flavour profile that can hold its own against the wine's intensity.

Serving Suggestions

For optimal enjoyment, serve the Domaine de Fontavin Vacqueyras Rouge Cuvée Tradition at a slightly cool temperature, ideally between 13°C and 15°C (55°F - 59°F). Decanting the wine for 30 minutes before serving can further soften the tannins and enhance the bouquet.
