Tardieu-Laurent Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

#93 of Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2012 "The poster child for Tardieu’s winemaking style is this 2009 Côtes du Rhône. It features masses of luscious oak—toasted coconut, cedar, vanilla—with just enough raspberry fruit to support it. It’s full bodied and lushly textured, even a bit dessert-like despite being totally dry. Probably best consumed on its own over the next few years...92" WE Editors' Choice 7/12

The wine that blew me away was the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau. I think this will probably end up being called "Cuvee Speciale," which is what Tardieu has done in the past. This 100% Grenache cuvee tips the scales at 16% natural alcohol. Blueber... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes comes primarily from two sectors of Chateauneuf du Pape, La Crau and Mont Olivet. It is a dense ruby/purple color, with plenty of garrigue, lavender, black currant, black cherry, sandy, loamy soil notes al... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2009 Rasteau Vieilles Vignes shows more powerful, masculinity, earthiness in a more rustic, rough-and-tumble style that will take several years to calm down in bottle, but it has loads of earth and chocolate to it.
