Tardieu Laurent : Côte-Rôtie 2012

Rhone Valley - Cote-Rotie - Red - 12.5° Tardieu Laurent Tardieu Laurent 2012 F616/12
  • Parker : 91-93
  • J. Robinson : 17+
The Côte-Rôtie Tardieu Laurent 2012 is a wine about terroir. It is 100% Syrah - the emblematic grape of the appellation-, 100% Côte Brune and the grape is not stalked which reveals all the strength of this particular region. The old vines -60 years minimum- gives the wine a powerful and complex aromatic bouquet. It is also aged in new oak barrels so the palate is woody and the wine is full bodied. The meeting between old vines and barrels make the Côte-Rôtie Tardieu Laurent 2012 a well-balanced wine, racy and atypical. The vintage leaves room for the terroir. A wine to enjoy in the next 5 to 10 years.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Coming all from the Cote Brune, the 2012 Cote Rotie is another promising 2012 from this producer. Possessing the classic Cote Rotie perfume of raspberries, olive tapenade, violets and tinges of bacon fat, this medium to full-bodied, supple and approachable effort has solid concentration and sweet tannin. Enjoy it any time over the coming 10-12 years.
