Cotes-du-Rhone Cuvee Speciale Tardieu-Laurent 2011 Magnum

Tardieu-Laurent is essentially a super-selective négociant-éleveur, family owned and run. Michel Tardieu is at the helm working alongside with his oenologist son Bastien with his wife Michelle and daughter Camille on administration. The concept of the company centres around Michel’s and increasingly Bastien’s Tardieu's abilities in sourcing small parcels of designated wines from quality fruit, then taking care of their élevage in the Tardieu’s cellar in Lourmarin. Michel has worked tirelessly to build relationships with small growers, over many years, encouraging best practice and sourcing, in the main, low production, old vine fruit. It is Michel’s and Bastien’s meticulous attention to detail, which makes these wines so special.

"This is spéciale indeed, fashioned from 100% ancient grenache noir, whole bunch pressed with no de-stemming. The combination of old vines and sandy soils made for a winning combination in the face of the challenges of the 2011 growing season. Deep plum-ruby in colour, this reveals a ripe, headily-perfumed brew, violets, wild blackberry and raspberry to the fore, with a savoury backdrop. elegant floral notes, summer berries and cherry dominate the palate, held in check by a persistent mineral restraint. a breezy flash of pepper adds intrigue and one year old alliers and Tronçais barrels contribute texture and delicate spice – a lovely wine and a fine ambassador for the vintage"
