Jeantet Laurent Étoile Rouge 2018
- Rich, full-bodied
Étoile means ‘star’ in French and this wine is a star indeed. It hails from the town of St-Georges in Languedoc, where the locals have been marking their barrels with a star since the 1700s to delineate those special wines from those of the broader region. Their rouge is a deep and powerful mourvèdre-dominant blend, that is made in tiny quantities (less than 2000 bottles) and shows of the potential of the area from old vines on clay-limestone soil. Deep and powerful, it is full of cherries and blackberries, with spiced notes of aniseed and sandalwood. It is a bold wine with a silky mouthfeel and persistent acid. Super long. Super delicious.
“A barrel sample of the 2018 Languedoc Etoile Rouge was smoking good, with medium to full-bodied richness and great aromas of blue fruits, violets, tree bark, and some meaty nuances. It’s balanced, elegant, and has fine tannins.”
