Maison Tardieu-Laurent Crozes Hermitage Vieilles Vignes 2014

The Maison Tardieu-Laurent Crozes Hermitage Vieilles Vignes is made from 100% Syrah aged for 12 months in new and one year old oak and then six months in foudre. Bottled without fining or filtration this is a deeply coloured wine that displays complex and stylish aromas with red and black fruit, floral notes and tobacco/cedar undertones. The palate, in line with the aromatics suggested by the nose, is both heady and exuberant, with ripe, fleshy fruit, complemented by briny minerals. This is a really lovely wine.
