Tardieu-Laurent White Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Vieilles Vignes 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Robert Parker: A wine that is also already in bottle and a terrific bargain is the 2009 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Les Becs Fins. Aged totally in tank, this blend is dominated by Grenache, with some Syrah, Cinsault, and Mourvedre. A relatively large cuvee by Michel Tardieu’s standards, it exhibits super-deep black raspberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with licorice, lavender, and a hint of Provencal herbs. Round, corpulent, generous, and full-bodied, it is a dazzling effort for this price point and can be drunk over the next 4-5 years. (Oct 2010)

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.

Sehr dunkles Rubin. Viel Kirschfrucht, Zwetschgenkompott und ein Hauch Zimtstern in der offenen, intensiven Nase. Grossartig strukturierter Gaumen, die tolle Fruchtaromatik bestätigt sich, etwas Gewürznelke und eine Prise schwarzer Pfeffer gesellen sich dazu; sehr angenehme Tanninstruktur, körperreich und opulent, langes Finale.
