Tardieu-Laurent Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes Blanc France 2009
Tardieu-Laurent is one of the most highly acclaimed negociants in the Rhone. Its success began with a serendipitous meeting between Michel Tardieu and Dominique Laurent. The two formed a friendship in the early 1990s, which led to the formation of Tardieu-Laurent Vallee du Rhone Maison de Negoce. Beginning with the first vintage in 1994, the wines of Tardieu-Laurent have won the praise of collectors and critics alike. Today, while the two men continue to share an extraordinary friendship, Tardieu-Laurent is solely under Michel's guidance and care. Located in Lourmarin, in the heart of the Luberon, Tardieu-Laurent crafts approximately 17 wines each year, two-thirds of which are produced in southern Rhone. The remaining wines are produced in northern Rhone.
External Reviews for Tardieu-Laurent Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes Blanc France
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 along with underbrush. A quintessential wine of Provence - full-bodied powerful yet at the same time elegant and very complex - it can be drunk over the next 15+ years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
