Product description

Tardieu Laurent is one of the top Rhone wine negociant firms. They are one of the few domaines that strives to use biodynamic farming techniques. Tardieu Laurent is not shy about using new oak, or modern winemaking techniques. Many of their wines are very modern in style. As Tardieu Laurent makes wine from purchased fruit, they focus on obtaining the best sources possible.

94 Points Wine Spectator ... Tightly wound, with a solid core of dark currant, raspberry and blackberry reduction notes, laced with sweet tobacco, singed mesquite and sanguine details. Shows piercing focus on the finish, with serious length as the mineral edge lingers. Best from 2021 through 2035.

94 Points Wine Enthusiast... This beautifully structured Côte-Rôtie balances ripe, concentrated black-cherry and plum flavors against elegant notes of fresh thyme, rosemary and bacon. It's penetrating and freshly fruited but vibrantly balanced in acidity. The finish is long, edged by finely integrated but gripping tannins.
