Shipping calculated at checkout.

Located in between Gigondas and Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the village of Vacqueyras was finally granted its own AC in 1990 after vociferous lobbying. Domaine Le Couroulu, founded in 1928 and still owned by the Ricard family, is known for producing some of the most full-bodied Vacqueyras and other wines from their 20 hectares of old Grenache and Syrah vines.

The estate is named for the Curlew bird, which is known in Provencal dialect as Couroulu: this bird is the signature emblem on the Domaine’s labels. Winemaker Guy Ricard, who represents the third generation, is one of the Rhone’s most passionate and pleasant personalities, qualities which are reflected in his generous and engaging wines. Its high winemaking standards follow many of the same rules as Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Roust and rustic in style, this red combines delicate aromas with intense fruit and a bright, crisp texture. Showing an abundance of black cherry, wild berry, plum, fig, baking spice, and a touch of game or smoke.
