The Oddbins Take

Having gained its AOC status as recently as 1990, Vacqueyras might be viewed as the little brother of its immediate southern Rhône neighbour, Gigondas. Together, they might be looked upon as Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s rascally nephews, except now they’re all grown up and threatening to take over the family farm. Like a rustic French version of the Godfather, or a sequel to Jean de Florette perhaps. Definitely starring Gerard Depardieu, either way, and, it goes without saying, featuring some very fine wine sequences…
