Gabriel Meffre 2018 Laurus Red (Beaumes-de-Venise)

Crushed granite and sun-drenched mulberries introduce this full-bodied but sharply balanced blend of 50% Grenache, 45% Syrah and 5% Carignan. Sourced from gypsum and clay soils in high-altitude sites in the Dentelles de Montmirail, it highlights bright, almost zesty redcurrant and red-cherry flavors edged by fine, silky tannins. The fresh finish conveys lingering notes of smoked nut and cinnamon. It's ready now but should hold through 2026. Anna Lee C. Iijima
