“Pure and balanced, with the charming, fleshy, forward style of the vintage, the 2016 Beaumes De Venise Laurus boasts loads of kirsch and blackberry fruit as well as plenty of peppery herbs, spice, and hints of flowers…a seriously character-filled red…” Jeb Dunnuck – 26th September 2018

Detailed information


After a mild and dry winter, a spring without frost and a particularly hot summer, harvesting began several days later than 2015, with picking taking place between early to late September. During the harvest, weather conditions were truly exceptional, with warm clear days, fresh nights and some occasional light rainfall, stretching from early September all the way until the end of October. The sanitary state of the grapes throughout the region was excellent. So, this year again, the 2016 vintage is very qualitative particularly for southern appellations.
