    Domaine Brusset Laurent B Côtes du Rhône '18

    Southern Rhône

    Domaine Brusset Laurent B Côtes du Rhône '18

    It only took a sip of “Laurent B” to set us thinking about lamb chops and Le Puy lentils with garlic and thyme. A classic Côtes du Rhône blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, and Mourvèdre, “Laurent B” is a medium-bodied red that strikes a mouth-watering balance between fruit-focused and savory flavors.

    The domaine, founded in 1947 with three hectares of vineyards in Cairanne, in the southern Rhône Valley, is run by third-generation winemaker Laurent Brusset. The domaine has expanded over the years, with additional hectares in Cairanne as well as vineyards in the Côtes de Ventoux and Gigondas, at the base of the Dentelles de Montmirail, a chain of mountains to the west of Mont Ventoux in Provence. The grapes are all hand-picked and destemmed, with parcels as well as varieties vinified separately. The wines are fermented in temperature-controlled steel vats.

    One of the wine’s attributes is that while showing the ripe fruit profile characteristic of Grenache-based reds, it doesn’t have the high degree of alcohol they often have, especially those from neighboring, better-known areas such as Châteauneuf-du-Pape (no offense, CdP). Ripe red and black raspberry and cherry, anise, a touch of peppercorn, olive, and dried green herbs—pair this wine with dishes that are roasted, grilled, sautéed, or even a bit smokey. Its ample fruit flavors, moderate alcohol, gentle tannins, and refreshing acidity are a good match for a range of sweet or bold spices as well as a bit of heat.
