Le Couroulu, Vacqueyras, Cuvée Classique, 2015

This is the principal wine at this estate, named after the curlew which adorns its labels. From about 65% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre it delivers chunky red and black fruit, spiced with pepper.

"Lovely iodine and leather character here - proper maturity and reach, with a lovely bitter juniper note to finish. Fruit is still ripe and thick. Lovely state of maturity. 17/20", Richard Hemming, jancisrobinson.com, 20th December 2018.

Guy Ricard's vines are situated on the plateau des garrigues near the town where some elevation brings extra heat during the day and cooler air by night. The soil is mostly clay and sand covered by a thick layer of pebbles from the ancient bank of the river Ouvèze. On this exposed site the Mistral has a drying and cleansing effect on the vines, preventing disease.

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
