Vacqueyras Blanc Vieilles Vignes Tardieu-Laurent 2018

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 a new wine to the line-up this year. White grapes represeent less than 5% of the plantings in Vacqueyras, making this something of a rarity.

"It comes from Les Garrigues, a clay-heavy soil with limestone gravels. Substantially proportioned, with notes of fennel and anise, it comes to a precise finish, with a parched bite of chalky minerality. 40% Grenache Blanc, 30% Clairette (which brings a lightness of touch), 20% Roussanne, 10% Bourbolenc.
