Tardieu-Laurent Red Rhone Blend Côtes du Rhône Vieilles Vignes 2005

Member Review by Barberolo:

Well made with nice ripe fruit and good Rhone herb undercore but not terribly complex and way overpriced compared to other '05 CdP of similar quality. Not in the Pegau, Beaucastel, Clos des Papes circle although the price is.

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.

Still shrouded by its bacony toast, this has a lot to resolve, but the massive core of blackberry, black currant, fig, loam, dark tobacco and molten chocolate is very impressive. The finish shows the grip and balance of the vintage, boding well for serious cellaring. Best from 2009 through 2032.

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (90% Grenache and equal parts Mourvedre and Syrah) comes primarily from the famed sector of Chateauneuf du Pape known as La Crau. This is a beautiful wine that is more elegant than the regular Chateauneuf du Pape, with raspberry and kirsch liqueur notes, a deep ruby color, finesse, acidity, and ripe tannin. It seems to be a terroir-based statement of Chateauneuf du Pape that cuts a style midway between the traditionalists and the modernists. This wine will need several years of bottle age, and should drink nicely for 15 or more years. Introduced first in 2001, Michel Tardieu makes a traditional Chateauneuf du Pape from 100% Grenache and 100% stems. He believes the wine needs at least 5andndash;7 years of bottle age and then is meant to last 25andndash;30 years.

The enormously endowed 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (a 550-case blend of 70-year old Grenache) reveals a knock-out nose of licorice, kirsch liqueur, pepper, herbs, and spice. It is long and opulent, with oodles of sweet glycerin, great purity, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute.

The 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a blend of mostly Grenache with some Syrah and Mourvedre. Provencal notes of herbes de Provence, smoked meats, pepper, and black cherries jump from the glass as well as the flavors of this wine, which is medium to full-bodied, tannic, and backward. It will need 4-5 years of bottle age and last for 15 or more.

Reminiscent of Pomerol's Château l'Evangile, the inky/purple-colored 2001 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes offers up aromas of violets, blackberries, and raspberries. Full-boded and intensely concentrated, with backgournd notes of new oak, this phenomenally pure, rich, structured 2001 demands 3-5 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2007- 2018.

Ruby-red. Superripe, liqueur-like red fruit aromas complemented by a deep chocolate tone. Brighter in the mouth, taking on a fresh raspberry quality, with fine, silky tannins providing structural support. The finish is sweet but racy, with excellent persistence to the red berry flavors.
