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

In southern France, one of the primary wine regions responsible for the production of a fine and varied range of wines is the Rhone Valley. Split into two large sub-regions, this expansive valley benefits from micro-climates which allow the wineries to grow a vast array of fine grape varietals. The northern region is the more limited one in regards to the amount of varietals grown, focusing predominantly on raising excellent quality Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier vines for their distinctive and elegant range of wines. The southern region, on the other hand, has a beautifully Mediterranean climate, and is home to dozens of grape varietals which are used to produce white, red and rosé wines, alongside some of the most famous and widely loved blended wines in the world.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
