Domaine Drouhin Lauréne Pinot Noir 2014

SKU 3982


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. On the palate, the 2012 Laurène is rich, complex and layered, with excellent structure and a beautiful long finish. There is no question that it is a powerful vintage, but there is focus and a sense of refinement. Overall, I think this Laurène has the energy and definition to age easily for 10 to 15 years.

Wine AdvocatePale to medium ruby-purple, the 2014 Pinot Noir Laurene offers a very fragrant nose of exotic spices-anise, cardamom and fenugreek-over a core of pomegranate, rhubarb, Bing cherries, fertile loam and truffles. Medium-bodied with a taut, fine structure of fine tannins and refreshing acid, the fruit has plenty of earth and red berry layers that linger with great persistence.
