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. 

This Vieilles Vignes cuvée is roughly 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah. Grenache plantings are 90 years of age, while the Syrah vines are just over 60 years old.
