Laboure Roi Cote du Rhone 2002

Member Review by kylewolf:

So easy to drink. The early palate is typical of most French and Italian wines being light bodied and with medium color. The body reminds me of leaves in the fall, being brittle, sharp, and crisp. Odd words for a red, flavors of cherry pit and fruit stone. Maintains a fruit forward flavor lacking many dark tones. This vintage is cellaring well and should last many years if you can find it. I have no idea on normal price as I found this from a distributor close out. It think this will go well with dried fruit, gouda, and light meats. For not beings an old world wine fan, this is truly a great wine.
