Grape variety for rosé and red wine
Main grape variety in the Vacqueyras appellation. This grape variety of Spanish origin has been imported as early as the middle ages in the Languedoc, the Rhone Valley and Provence. Grenache produces fleshy, deep wines with fairly dense tannins and aromas of very ripe red fruit, reflecting the sunny side of the region. Grenache is at the heart of “sunny” red wines, full-bodied and warm, with a generous roundness. The proportion of Grenache Noir grape varieties in the Vacqueyras appellation should be greater than or equal to 50%.

Grenache is king in terroirs with fairly thick, stony alluvium, such as the terrace of the Garrigues de Vacqueyras.
