Gabriel Meffre Cote Rotie Laurus 2005
A beautiful dark purple robe with intensity. The nose opens on classic spicy notes of nutmeg and cinnamon with hints of liquorice which are the hallmark of the Syrah grape; Vanilla notes are also present thanks to the oak ageing in Laurus barrels. An impressive structure is present on the palate with fine tannins.
