Tardieu-Laurent Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 2012

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Superb and with loads of potential, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, with the Grenache aged in older barrel and the Syrah in new barrels) is more deep and layered than the Cuvee Speciale. Offering up impressive notes of mineral, new leather and smoky black fruits, this full-bodied, layered and textured 2012 has superb mid-palate depth, fine tannin and an all-around concentrated, backwards feel. It will require 3–4 years of bottle age and keep for 15 years or more. Drink 2017–2027.

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.

This is packed with dark, alluring fig, blackberry and boysenberry paste flavors, inlaid with dried anise and well-roasted alder and cedar notes. Offers a lingering ganache edge on the finish. This has heft, but remains very silky in feel. Best from 2016 through 2026. 500 cases made.
