A drinking (wo)man's Minervois
I promised to redress the balance after my rather unfavourable review of a white from this estate.
There are three bottles of red Lauran Cabaret on my supermarket (Geant) shelves at three different prices, and do you know, in a blind horizontal tasting among some fellow aficionados, the cheapest was invariably returned as the best. This was so at opening, halfway drunk, and at the end of the bottle - I cannot say it often enough, the nose, the texture and the 'finale' of the wine will give different characters.
So, a lovely wine, light depite it's being rather a cocktail of grapes, highly recommended. In this case accompanying a delightful dish of devilled kidneys and a lightly dressed rocket and lettuce salad. #superbvalue #minervois #laurancabaret
