$130.00 per Bottle
 

Description

Our 2012 Laurène is rich, complex and layered, with excellent structure and a beautiful long finish.

Tasting Notes

The 2012 Laurène has a lovely, intense, bright ruby color. On the nose, the wine is a vibrant mix of red and black berries, red and black cherries, fresh spice and wild herbs. There is a delicate touch of oak, which integrates nicely. There is no question that it is a powerful vintage, but there is focus and and a sense of refinement. Overall, I think this Laurène has the energy and definition to age easily for 10 to 15 years.

Production Notes

The 2012 Vintage. By any measure, 2012 is an extraordinary vintage. After the cool, late 2010 and 2011 harvests, nobody knew what to expect in 2012, and certainly, we could not have predicted such a spectacular growing season. Harvest began on October 3 under clear skies, and finished 15 days later. Day after day, we were amazed by the uniformly exceptional quality of fruit. An experience to remember!
