Tasting Notes

Vacqueyras from Le Sang des Cailloux shows an aromatic expression of fig, blackberry, and black pepper, with hints of liquorice in the background. Rich, elegant, and savoury attack, marked by notes of black fruits, black berries, and spices, with mellow tannins in the finish.

France

Rhône Valley

Rhone Valley is a key wine region in the south-east of France, following the Rhone river from Lyon to the Mediterranean coast. This region is divided in two parts - Northern Rhone and Southern Rhone. The first one is home to Syrah for the production of red wines while the second one mostly uses the famous Grenache - Syrah - Mourvèdre blend.

Domaine Le Sang des Cailloux

Moderate continental climate

Domaine Le Sang des Cailloux

The soils in the Rhone Valley are the result of a geological collision between the Massif Central and the Alps, creating the valley. This region can be split into two sub-regions, Northern and Southern Rhône. Successive layers of fluvial and calcareous marine sediments formed reliefs and geological diversities in the Southern Rhône. The valley’s soils consists nowadays of four different types of rock: granite, sandy silica, limestone and clay. Here the bedrock plays a major role by allowing different access to water and nutrients depending on the soils compositions.
