Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc Guy Louis Tardieu-Laurent 2010


Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc Guy Louis Tardieu-Laurent 2010

This is a blend of grapes produced in both the Northern and Southern Rhone. A very pretty, shimmering gold-straw in colour, bottled just 10 days before we tasted, this showed remarkable resilience. Often wines go into shock after bottling and, behaving like truculent teenagers, reveal very little. This was just a little subdued, the aromatics allowing the oak (new and one year old) to dominate at this embryonic stage but this will balance out in time. Even in the course of tasting and chatting, a more articulate profile emerged. Orchard and stone fruit came to the fore, refreshed by white flowers and complemented by hints of cedar. Richly-textured, this ought to convert white Rhone sceptics who may have unfavourable memories of the rather tired wines of old. This is supremely well-balanced, rounded, opulent and, best of all, fresh, with an uplifting, bright finish - beautifully handled.Estimated arrival UK : January 2012

"Always a great buy, expressive and rich but with good balance, punches well above it's weight."
