This wine is a classic blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre, offering a snapshot of the region's garrigue-scented terroir.

Wine Expert Note:

The Domaine Le Couroulu Vacqueyras Vieilles Vignes reveals a dense ruby color, giving way to a nose rich with dark berries, plum, and hints of licorice and thyme. Earthy undertones and a signature Rhône spiciness add depth. On the palate, the old vine Grenache provides concentration and velvety texture, while Syrah and Mourvèdre contribute structure and dark fruit nuances. This full-bodied wine balances intensity with elegance, the fine tannins and herbal garrigue notes leading to a persistent, savory finish. It's a wine that reflects the sun-bathed richness of Southern France with the potential to evolve in the cellar.
