Tardieu-Laurent: Great Rhones

Tardieu-Laurent: Great Rhones | WineMadeEasy.com

Tardieu-Laurent in the wine trade is what we call a "négociant." Instead of owning vineyards, they select and buy wines from growers in many regions of France. In this case the wines are from the Northern Rhone (Saint-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage) and the Southern Rhone (Cotes-du-Rhone and Chateauneuf-du-Pape). Their very high standards have led to critical acclaim at every price-point.

  1. Tardieu-Laurent Les Becs Fins Blanc

    2021 / 750 ml. | Item#58003

    JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/11/2022
    The 2021 Côtes Du Rhône Les Becs Fins Blanc offers lots of white peach, honeyed flowers, and apple blossom-like nuances in a medium-bodied, supple, fruit-forward, yet incredibly pure and balanced package. It’s a terrific white well worth seeking out. I’d drink bottles over the coming year or two, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it keep longer either. (Jeb Dunnuck)

    A tasty, friendly white, with honeysuckle, creamed pear, quince and warm ginger flavors that are broad and open. Reveals zesty spice and quinine bitter notes, which make for a lively finish. Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Clairette. Drink now. (Alison Napjus)

  2. Tardieu-Laurent Crozes-Hermitage Vieilles Vignes

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#58002

    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2021
    Packed with dark fig, boysenberry and blackberry fruit, this pumps along with ample depth and drive, picking up licorice snap, roasted applewood and dark tea notes along the way. Nice energy through the finish too, thanks to an underlying iron note. Drink now through 2030. 1,000 cases made, 150 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

    Leading off the reds, the 2019 Crozes-Hermitage Vieilles Vignes offers a dense purple color as well as ripe, powerful notes of smoked red and black fruits, scorched earth, chocolate, and a touch of smoke meat. It’s rich, medium to full-bodied, and balanced. (Jeb Dunnuck)

    JD95+95–97 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 12/14/2020
    Also pure Southern Rhône goodness, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes has classy notes of red and blue fruits, candied orange, flowers, peppery garrigue, and loads of Asian spices. Beautifully textured, silky, and elegant on the palate, it has wonderful tannins, a notable sense of freshness, and a great, great finish. (Jeb Dunnuck)

  4. Tardieu-Laurent Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Spéciale

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#57998

    SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2022
    Dark and a bit reticent still, showing a very deep well of dark plum, boysenberry and blackberry puree flavors scored by roasted apple wood and licorice root notes. Features serious drive on the finish, with a tannic spine that easily shoulders the load of fruit, while a subtle mineral note peeks through. This is built for the cellar. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2024 through 2038. 500 cases made, 50 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

    The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Spéciale is similarly deep purple hued and has a ripe, sexy style that’s very much in the vintage. Loads of black raspberries, Asian spices, candied flowers, and peppery garrigue give way to a full-bodied, concentrated, powerful wine with terrific balance, plenty of ripe and polished tannins, and a great finish. It’s a ripe, opulent wine that stays graceful and beautifully balanced. My money is on it benefiting from 4–5 years of bottle age, and it should have two decades of longevity. (Jeb Dunnuck)

  5. Tardieu-Laurent Saint-Joseph Vieilles Vignes

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#58000

    JD93+93–95+ pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 3/5/2021
    Another killer wine, the 2019 Saint-Joseph Vieilles Vignes reveals a dense purple color to go with loads of red and blue fruits, bacon fat, cured meat, and spring flowers. Offering classic Saint-Joseph minerality, medium to full-bodied richness, and plenty of both acidity and tannins, it’s going to shine for 15 years or more. (Jeb Dunnuck)
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2021
    This lets a silky-textured core of cherry and plum preserve notes unfurl slowly, carried by a bright iron streak and dotted with white pepper and savory accents on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2030. 750 cases made, 200 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
