The 2019 Domine La Croix du Verger Cotes-du-Rhone Villages 'Laudun' begins with vivid aromas of raspberries, cherries and plums are laced with spices, floral and herbs, which all develop in the glass. On the palate this displays a medium body, with a gorgeous soft, silky texture that leads up to the spiced-tinged finish, where flavors of red fruits and spices leave a lasting impression. A wonderful wine to approach early or watch evolve for a few more years
