Full-bodied, rich and still somewhat tannic but approachable, the 2013 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence features hints of mocha and leather layered over dark, plummy fruit, meaty, savory notes and a bit of dried herb. It's full-bodied and velvety, with lingering astringency on the finish. While it might smooth out a bit in time, I suspect it will always remain tannic, so pair it with grilled meats that will benefit from such a partner.

Mature, with smoky tobacco, bay leaf, menthol and savory notes emerging from the core of gently steeped black currant and blackberry fruit. Streaks of charcoal and leather line the finish, adding texture and length.
