“The Cotes du Rhone Laurent B […] 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.”

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate on Laurent B., October 2018

 

Brusset’s “Laurent B.” is an appealing blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignane, and Mourvedre from stony, clay- and limestone-rich soil.  The craggy, rocky “Dentelles de Montmirail” form the backdrop to Brusset  vineyards, some of Gigondas’ best. The steep terraced vineyards mean hand-harvesting is mandatory and mechanization is kept to a minimum. Fruit is vinified by variety in small lots, then matured in vats for six months before blending.

 

Rich, round, and warm, this a medium-bodied Côtes du Rhône with easy, moderate tannins and well-balanced acidity. Spicy red fruit lays over an elegant, supple texture. Enjoyable now, it will maintain its style as a tasty, cozy little wine over the next five to six years. Definitely a find, and a gem at the price. Tuck a case away at home, if you can.
