Domaine Font Sarade, Vacqueyras
The Burle family of Font Sarade has well-established Vacqueyras roots, the domaine now being run by father and daughter team, Bernard and Claire. It was Bernard who initiated domaine bottling, when he took over from his father in 2002. His years of winemaking in this northern sector of Vacqueyras are complemented by Claire’s more recent experiences in Adelaide. Having installed an immaculate new winery in 2015, the pair seek charm and fruit purity in their wines – a style that caught our attention with the 2015 vintage, and has wooed us once again with their 2016.
