Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes Tardieu-Laurent 2010

Very intensely coloured, this is trident from the outset with a dark, brooding nose, reminiscent of cherry compote, with hints of cedar, tobacco and spice. The palate exudes innate power, just held in check by a robust, ripe tannic structure. Though muscular and dense there is nonetheless an elegance and finesse.The finish, long, poised and layered with an attractive mineral poise, gives some indication of the wine's future - impressive!

"Small quantities in 2010 but brilliant quality, one of Michel's benchmark wines."
