Tasting

« The 2019 Vins De Pays D’Oc Syrah Laurus from Gabriel Meffre is a juicy, classic Syrah from the South of France, revealing lots of ripe black and blue fruits, peppery herbs, and a touch of violet-like character to go with a medium-bodied, mouth-filling style on the palate. Enjoy this peppery, nicely complex, balanced Syrah… » Jeb Dunnuck, October 2020

Detailed information

Vintage

In the Southern Rhône Valley the harvest was spread out between the 2nd of September and the beginning of October. White grapes were harvested in the first half of September while the reds were harvested in two parts in order to maximise elegance and intensity. The first half was around mid-September while the second picking took place towards the end of September, after a brief, beneficial rainfall. The balance and concentration of this vintage are remarkable.
