Overview

Along with L’Hostellerie, La Cantarelle is a cuvée suggested by Philippe Cambie and based on a plot of centenary vines of Grenache on the property. A small amount of younger vine Syrah is added and the wine is aged entirely in concrete tanks for at least 24 months. With the concentration that only old-vines can bring La Cantarelle is dense with plenty of structure submerged behind black-fruit flavors. Tasted along side l’Hostellerie it becomes evident that the terroirs of Vacqueyras are far from monolithic.
