Rasteau Vieilles Vignes Tardieu-Laurent 2017

70% Grenache (the vines of which are a magnificent 80 years old), 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre (both a ‘mere’ 40 years old). A third of the grapes were left undestemmed and fermented as whole-bunches. A dark, kirschinflected nose, with bitter cherries and dark chocolate. The palate, by contrast, is supple and delectable, polished and rounded: this is a wine that embraces you, with an unexpected sweetness of fruit. “Shirley Bassey”, I appear to have scribbled during my first tasting… Aged for 12 months in one and two year-old barrels, then for eight months in foudres. Bravo.
