Tardieu-Laurent:
Settled in Lourmarin, charming village of Luberon, "Tardieu-Laurent" is the fruit of the meeting between Dominique Laurent - Négociant in Wines of Bourgogne - and Michel Tardieu, a Provençal born with an extreme passion for Wines that are authentic and have character.

Now, Michel Tardieu is completely, and alone, in charge of Tardieu-Laurent. Fine expert of his dear Vallée du Rhône, a Region he has been visiting restlessly for decades, Michel Tardieu tied confident relationships with a number of Vignerons, amongst the most remarkable in each Appellation.

Bright, jammy fruit with great balance. I very much enjoyed this wine. Actually more so than the Chateuneuf Du Pape we tasted today. -Tasted at Marché Bacchus 11/14/09

Decanted 2 hours, Ruby color, hot perfume of blackberries with notes of cherries, violets and chocolate. light body, still concentrated, bright palate of leather, blueberries and cranberries with notes of clove, luscious finish of stonefruit, orange rind and licorice.

Perfectly balanced wine with great structure, and a cool blend of anise, cocoa and fruit. The tannins are supple. Great for sipping, but obviously ideal for food. We had it with a rich boeuf a la bourgignon (I know, odd). Would work beautifully with lamb, and sauces or other dishes with herbal flavors.

Excellent. Great mouth feel. Red fruit with bubble gum wrapped around them.

The superb 1995 Chateauneuf du Pape displays gobs of black-raspberry, black-cherry, and herb-tinged fruit, good fat and glycerin, lofty alcohol, and a ripe, chewy, structured finish. The wine is intensely concentrated, and obviously made from low-yielding, old vines. It will be accessible young. Last tasted 6/96.

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.

Michel Tardieu's 2009 red Northern Rhone offerings still have a long wait in barrel before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. They all reveal deep colors as well as abundant concentration, structure and power. I thought the best cuvees were the Co... 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.

The old stand-by of Michel Tardieu is the 2009 Cotes du Rhone Guy Louis. This wine is about 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, all coming from three sectors - Cairanne, Rasteau, and the vast ocean of mostly Grenache-based vineyards known as the Plan de Dieu...

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.

The 2007 Cotes du Rhone Guy Louis (equal parts Syrah and Grenache) comes from multiple sectors in the southern Rhone, primarily Rasteau, Cairanne, Coudoulet, and Plan de Dieu.
