Tasting Note:

An enticing, smokier tone to this than the 2013 Cuvee Reservee. Smouldering dark berry fruits with notes of cigar box. The texture is silky and the fruit lively but generous, flavours of Morello cherry and rock salt, hints of bramble. Sumptuous and free-flowing. Cuvee Laurence is the result of one cask of Cuvee Reserve being singled out by Laurence Feraud for extended ageing, which amounts to an extra two years in large oak foudres. This is only done in certain vintages. The blend is therefore the same as that of Cuvee Reservee, approximately 80% Grenache with the rest made up of Syrah, Mourvedre, Counoise and a smattering of the other permitted varieties. Approximately 600 cases were made.
