Domaine le Couroulu Vacqueyras Cuvee Classique 2013

SKU 35111


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.

Wine AdvocateFrom one of my favorite estates, the 2013 Vacqueyras Cuvee Classique shows the vintage's more focused and straight style. It is pretty and complex, with notes of Provencal, garrigue, sappy flowers, peppery spice and pretty berry fruit. The wine is made from 55% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre and 15% Mourvedre. Drink this medium-bodied, delicious and easy drinking Vacqueyras on release and over the following 5-7 years.
