Located in between Gigondas and Chateauneuf du Pape, the village of Vacqueyras received Appellation Controllee status in 1990. 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, and is the signature emblem on the domaine’s labels. 

The 'Cuvéee Classique' is a blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre. It is sourced from 10ha of vines across 8 parcels, soils are a mix of Galets Roules, sand and clay.
