Domaine Le Couroulu, Vacqueyras, Veille Vignes, 2015 Double Magnum

A double magnum, three litres, so four bottles of this wonderfully hearty southern Rhone. 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.
