Tasting

” …the 2019 Côte Rôtie Laurus has lots of black raspberry, mulberries, graphite, crushed stone, and gamey notes to go with a full-bodied style on the palate. It has plenty of tannins but more than enough fruit. ” Jeb Dunnuck, November 2020

Detailed information

Vintage

In the Northern Rhone Valley, the vintage is of exceptionnally high quality, showing both richness and freshness. Following a rather warm start to the spring, temperatures dropped and remained below seasonal averages until the beginning of summer. The vines then faced high temperatures in July and August. Thankfully, rain arrived at the beginning of the harvest, ensuring both quantity and quality for all of our appellations.
