Tardieu-Laurent White Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Vieilles Vignes 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Fruit hides behind the still austere density of the Wine. Unusual concentration. It will take some time in the bottle before the Wine reveals its enormous potential.

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.

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.

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 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 5–7 years of bottle age and then is meant to last 25–30 years.

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 ... Stephen Tanzer. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2005 Tardieu-Laurent Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes 750ml

Dark ruby. Ripe, youthfully brooding dark fruit flavors are slow to unfold, eventually giving up floral blackberry and blueberry notes and a dollop of licorice. Spicy cherry and blackberry flavors are a touch bitter and tannic but gain sweetness on the finish, reluctantly.

Dark ruby. Ripe, youthfully brooding dark fruit flavors are slow to unfold, eventually giving up floral blackberry and blueberry notes and a dollop of licorice. Spicy cherry and blackberry flavors are a touch bitter and tannic but gain sweetness on the finish, reluctantly. This needs cellaring.
