Domaine le Couroulu Vacqueyras Cuvee Classique 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

The Vacqueyras Cuvee Classique is a blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 15% 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.

Very fruity, yet with body.

Vivid purple. Dark berries, lavender and Asian spices on the perfumed nose. Fleshy and seamless on the palate, offering gently sweet blackberry and blueberry flavors that are given spine by juicy acidity. Finishes tangy and long, with resonating spiciness and harmonious tannins.

Two spectacular Vacqueyras were also produced in 2010. Both are black as a moonless night with lots of blueberry and blackberry fruit. The 2010 Vacqueyras Cuvee Classique, a blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre aged in cement tanks, is more evolved with good acidity, terrific focus and unbelievable concentration for a wine that sells for under 10 euros at the domaine.

The 2007 Vacqueyras Cuvée 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 don't make the mistake of drinking it all in its exuberant youthfulness, as it will keep for 6-7 years. It is a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre aged in foudres.

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.

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, Mourvegrave;dre and Cinsault from the wine area just north of Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape. Offering big, jammy, smoky flavors and a delicate finish, this is a high quality southern Rhocirc;ne wine at a really nice price.
