Rasteau Vieilles Vignes Tardieu-Laurent 2011

A deep, plum-cherry in colour, with a bright, firm rim. Beyond the initial reticence, the wine gradually opens up to present really intense red and black berried fruit, pepper-spiced and appetising. Aged in one year old barrels some Allier, some Tronçais oak, there is added intrigue whilst maintaining impeccable purity of fruit. Facing full south on a higher altitude, upper slope, this makes for overall balance whilst nuanced spice and cedar, wild flowers and herbs vie for dominance.

"Michel Tardieu has found a few wonderful parcels here, this gives Gigondas and the other better known villages a real run for there money. "
