Review: $$ Jean-Marie Armoux Vieux Clocher Vacqueyras, France, 2004

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Jean-Marie Armoux Vieux Clocher Vacqueyras.

Original tasting and review : This is Jean-Marie Armoux Vieux Clocher Vacqueyras, France, 2004, finished at 14% alcohol, tasted now at nine years from vintage date.


In the glass: Medium dusty magenta.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows muddled red and black berry fruit, with some overtones suggesting too much age.  From the aroma, seems like this will be soft, pungent and layered.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact well perfumed in its heart, but over the hill in its body.  A solid offering at its core, but tasted too late in its lifecycle.  Drink within six years of vintage date. We won't rate this on the Spirit of Wine scale, due to its having passed its drinking window.
