Maison Tardieu-Laurent Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge Guy Louis 2018
The Maison Tardieu-Laurent Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge Guy Louis is named after Michel’s father and is always an excellent example of red Côtes du Rhône, with organic grapes sourced primarily from the Cru appellations of the Southern Rhône. A blend of Grenache (60%), Syrah (35%) and Mourvèdre (5%) with a significant portion of non-destemmed berries this cuvée is aged for 12 months in one and two vintage old barrels, and 6 months in foudre. Lots of black cherry and raspberry notes, medium to full-bodied richness and fine elegant tannins. This is a superb Côtes du Rhône that offers great ageing potential.
