Brusset Laurent B. 2017

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  10341

The only 2017 red that had been bottled at the time of my visit, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Laurent B is 80% young-vine Cairanne and the rest Plan de Dieu, a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% each Cinsault and Mourvèdre that sees no wood. It's medium-bodied, fresh and fruity, with cherry and blueberry fruit that's juicy, delicious and silky on the finish. 'We're looking for drinkability,' says Brusset. Drink date: 2018-2022. Score - 90. (Joe Czerwinski,, Oct. 31, 2018)
