"Similarly gold-hued, the 2019 Hermitage Laurus Blanc boasts a big, exotic nose of honeyed citrus, quince, crushed stone, licorice, and toasted bread. As with the 2018, this rich, textured, medium to full-bodied beauty has loads of fruit, good underlying structure and acidity, and a great finish." Jeb Dunnuck - 19 nov 2020
