 Jeb Dunnuck writes:  I loved the 2020 Vacqueyras Doucinello, which should be a smoking value. Based on 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre, Carignan, and Cinsault, its vivid ruby/purple hue is followed by a sappy, floral bouquet the includes both red and black fruits as well as notes of rose petal, garrigue, and basil leaves. Silky, medium-bodied, wonderfully balanced, and already drinking great, it will evolve nicely through 2030.  - Jeb Dunnuck 92

Nicolas Greinacher writes:  The 2020 Vacqueyras Cuvee Doucinello bursts with raspberry, red cherry, black plum and licorice notes. Earthy and minty undertones further flesh out the aromatic profile. Coming in at 13.9% alcohol, this medium-bodied and delicious 2020 red delivers a seamless mouthfeel with a good drive on the savory finish.  Drinking 2023 -2029  - Vinous 91

Matt Walls writes:  Fine, precise, spicy berries and violets. Medium-bodied, fresh and lively. Finishes dry, with fine tannins and a little bit of dried Provençal herbs. Delightful. 20% whole bunch.  Drinking 2022 - 2027  - Decanter 93

James Suckling writes: The attractive nose of violets and blackberries pulls you into this rich and well-balanced Vacqueyras that has a slew of soft tannins supporting the full body. Long, supple and moderately dry finish with some finesse. Drink or hold.  - James Suckling 91
