Tardieu Laurent is one of the most acclaimed artisan-négociants throughout the Rhône Valley, and shares a lot of similarities with Mounir Saouma from Burgundy Lucien Le Moine. The Tardieu Family has secured long-term, hand-shake deals with vignerons who carefully guard the prime location of their 50- to 100-plus-year-old vines. They follow very closely all the stages from organic viticulture to winemaking. They also hand-pick the barrels they deliver to the growers for the first 8 to 12 months and then move them back to the Tardieu’s cellar in Lourmarin to polish the ageing up to 18-24 months.

70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre from 80-year-old vines on limestone-clay slopes and blue and yellow clay soils. 1/3 whole cluster fermentation, aged for 10 months in old barrels then 8 months in foudre and bottled without fining or filtration.
 
Deep ruby color and purple highlights with intense aromas of baked cherries, plums and wild herbs. The palate is rich and concentrated with added flavors of blackberries and chocolate framed by velvet tannins. Enjoy with roast lamb smothered with rosemary and herbs.
