Cuvée Laurence

Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Big sister of the Cuvée Réservée with an identical blend, the Cuvée Laurence is an extension of the aging in old oaks. Combining elegance and liveliness, the Cuvée Laurence reveals its full potential on each great occasion thanks to 4 years ageing that allows an osmosis between the suppleness of the tannins & the spices of the old wood.
