Le Couroulu, Vacqueyras, Cuvee Vielles Vignes, 2015

The Vieilles Vignes bottling is a very special Vacqueyras, from 60-year-old Grenache and Syrah, based on one plot planted mainly by Guy's grandparents on the plateau amidst the garrigue. Dark robe. The nose has a savoury edge. Intense black fruit, sweet blackberry and cassis with a touch of liquorice. More tannins than the Classique and more intensity. Beautiful bottle and a great keeper. Now-2025

"Leathery and thick and still very tannic - perhaps more so than the 2016, but with great balance and intensity. Dark, serious, slightly austere fruit with a very savoury, tarry finish. 17/20", Richard Hemming, jancisrobinson.com, 20th December 2018. Note the date of publication - this wine has come on since then - and also the excellent 17/20 score.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.

Friendly helpful people selling good quality interesting wines from many countries and at competitive prices. Wines you will NOT find in the supermarket! Free local delivery has been a boon during lockdown. What's not to love about SVS???
