2009 Tardieu Laurent Cornas "Vieilles Vignes"

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

We'd have never guessed Michel Laurent was once a chauffeur for state dignitaries. As the man behind every single technical and commercial decision for Tardieu-Laurent - the man who shepherds 17 different wines from vineyard to bottle each year - Tardieu seems to be a born winemaker. Dominique Laurent, a successful Burgundy negoçiant, recognized Michel's unique attributes, ultimately convincing him to join as a partner. Since then, Michel has more than earned his nickname "Haute Negoçe" (top negoçiant). He has a precise vision for every wine, which involves using grapes from only the best Rhône vineyards with the oldest vines, as well as working with as many organic and biodynamic vineyard growers as possible. In the winery, Michel pushes the limits, to make terroir-driven cuvees with an edge.

For their 2009 Cornas "Vieilles Vignes" (French for "old vines") they selected vineyard parcels with 80-year-old Syrah vines in the lieux-dits of Les Eygats and Patou within Cornas (a sub-region of the Rhône). Here the soils are rich with granite and the parcels arranged like an amphitheater towards the sun making a wine that's dense and luxurious, and gets better with each year.
