Le Couroulu Cuvee Classique Vacqueyras 2016 (France: Rhone, Southern) (ID# 3163)

Name Le Couroulu Cuvee Classique Vacqueyras 2016 (ID# 3163)
Varietal Red Blend
Region France: Rhone, Southern
Notes "Almost as good as the Vieilles Vignes from foudre, the 2016 Vacqueyras Cuvee Classique is just marginally less concentrated and deep. It's medium to full-bodied, with supple tannins and a fresh, zesty feel on the long finish." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Powerful aromas of ripe dark berries, cherry and licorice pick up hints of smokiness and cracked pepper as the wine opens up. Broad and fleshy in style, showing serious depth to the singed plum, cherry liqueur and cassis flavors. Closes long and chewy, with steadily building tannins and resonating dark fruit character. All concrete." (Josh Raynolds, Vinous)
