Maison Tardieu-Laurent Côte-Rôtie 2012

Maison Tardieu-Laurent Côte-Rôtie is a northern Rhône red wine made from 100% Syrah. Aged for 12 months in new French oak and then 12 months in foudre the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.

Lustrous, jet-shot plum in colour, this wine is extraordinary on the nose, dark and earthy with, cut herbs, wild rosemary and forest floor notes. The palate is similarly dark and brooding - intensely concentrated fruit supported by a ripe, firm tannic structure. A serious Côte-Rôtie impressively structured for long term ageing.
