Domaine le Couroulu Vacqueyras Cuvee Classique 2010
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.
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.
