Châteauneuf du Pape, Cuvée Laurence, 2014

4 cases
Equiv. £113.33 per bottle

Tasting Note:

A beautifully-defined nose. Lovely aromas – expressive, noble, fresh fruit gently mixed with spices. A juicy red fruit quality gives a fresh base to the wine, notes of loganberry raspberry and some darker bramble touches, whilst a hint of damson adds a gratifying sweetness. Bright fruit bursts from the glass followed up by a lingering salinity and cedary, peppery qualities which add just the right amount of seasoning to the finish. As rewarding, mouth-watering and harmonious as Châteauneuf-du-Pape gets. 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, so a total of four years ageing. 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 700 cases were made.
