LAURUS Cote Rotie - Syrah - Rhone, France

LAURUS Cote Rotie - Syrah - Rhone, France

"Creamy and supple, with a velvety finish that makes it approachable already. Scents of espresso and doused campfire give the nose a smoky cast, balanced by ample ripeness on the palate."" Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate Robert Parker - December 2017

VINEYARD

Laurus means ‘Laurel’ in Latin, a Roman symbol of excellence. Here excellence is all about “terroir”: the grapes are grown on plots we select for their ability to expressthe very best of each Appellation. The term “terroir” encompasses a soil, a climate and people.

Here it is expressed through sustainable partnerships with wine-growers who share our vision. The maturing process in 275-litre Laurus barrels refines the structure, producing complex wines with plenty of character and good cellaring potential.
