Domaine le Couroulu Vacqueyras Cuvée Classique 2007
The Vacqueyras Cuvee Classique is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. It undergoes a long, 20-day maceration period and is aged in large oak casks for two years before bottling. This big, spicy, robust, somewhat jammy wine represents exceptional value. It is an excellent match for grilled ribs, sausages, and steaks as well as roasts and stews of lamb, beef and game. Robert Parker consistently acclaims the Couroulu Vacqueyras as one of the finest wines of its appellation.
External Reviews for Domaine le Couroulu Vacqueyras Cuvée Classique
Guy Ricard is a passionate winegrower from the southern Rhandocirc;ne. The main grape varieties there are Grenache and Syrah, producing powerful and full-bodied Vacqueyras. The wine has aromas of violet and licorice, intense coloring and robustness. A touch of Mourvandegrave;dre gives the wine a nice smoothness, and good aging potential. This is a very versatile wine to pair with chicken, pork or beef.
A harmonious blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault from the wine area just north of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Offering big, jammy, smoky flavors and a delicate finish, this is a high quality southern Rhône wine at a really nice price.
Vivid red. Seductively perfumed complex bouquet of red and dark berries Asian spices and minerals. Pinot-like in aromas and flavors with sweet raspberry and blackberry notes silky texture and good back-end snap. This graceful wine is already very tasty but is balanced to age.
The 2007 Vacqueyras Cuvandeacute;e Classique is just that. Kirsch liqueur, roasted Provencal herbs, spice box, licorice, and lavender soar from the glass of this full-bodied, richly fruity wine, which has superb depth, density, and a 30+ second finish. This is an impressively endowed, round, voluptuous style of Vacqueyras, but donandrsquo;t make the mistake of drinking it all in its exuberant youthfulness, as it will keep for 6andndash;7 years. It is a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre aged in foudres.
Ripe and lush but well-harnessed as mesquite and iron notes lend a tangy frame to the solid core of mulled plum blackberry and fig fruit. The finish is long and smoldering. Drink now through 2011.
