Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Le Couroulu Vacqueyras 2015

Rated 92 by Vinous Media
Deep ruby. Spice-accented aromas of cassis and blueberry, joined by a slowly emerging smoky nuance. Densely packed black and blue fruit and dark chocolate flavors turn sweeter with air; juicy acidity and a peppery element provide lift and cut. Fine-grained tannins frame the finish, which echoes the cherry and licorice notes. (Vinous)
Rated 90 by Wine Advocate
The supple, charming 2015 Vacqueyras Cuvee Classique delivers less intensity than the Vieilles Vines, but this medium-bodied blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre still offers plenty to like, from savory herb and green olive complexity to ripe mixed berries and a silky finish.

Winery Domaine Le Couroulu

Region: Rhone Valley

The southern French wine region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers for over two thousand years, with the first grapevines of the region being cultivated in around 600 BCE when the ancient Greeks arrived with their knowledge of viticulture and eagerness to produce more wine. Today, the region is famed around the world for the excellence of its produce, and has dozens of wineries making the most of the wide range of grape varietals which flourish there. In the northern sub-region, the continental climate and brisk winds coming off the Central Massif allow wineries to grow a smaller range of varietals – predominantly Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier, whereas the southern, more Mediterranean sub-region allows far more range. Here, dozens of varietals are grown for the production of white, red and rosé wines, all packed full of flavor and able to express the unique terroir they are grown on.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
